From the Artist:
Graduated Fine Arts in 1981 at the University of Santo Tomas. My passion for art got me actively involved with numerous art exhibitions and groups in the Philippines and in Italy. I was a member of Degli Artisti in Rome, Italy, the Art Association of the Philippines, Pintor Kulapol of Tuy, Batangas, Philippines and Manila Artists Group.
My masterful skill and distinctive style have not gone unnoticed and had been honoured with numerous awards, among them a Bronze Medal from Romes 7th Concorzo Di Pittura Estemporanea in 1985, Italy and Second Prize in On the Spot Painting Contest in Manilas City Gallery in 1979.
About My Art:
Three years after coming to Toronto in 2000, I was warmly accepted into the circle of the Philippine Artist Group in Canada. With my creative versatility in both the traditional and modern styles of art, I continue to earn recognition for Filipino artists by participating in local Canadian juried shows.
I held on to my artworks because they reflect my story, the places and events that have defined my life and times in art. My drawings, sketches, paintings, collages and sculptures, some old and some minted just a few years ago were my treasures. I believe in art metamorphosis which took me into the present through uncommon paths. I flourished for sometime in the traditional styles. My various jobs as a Designer in Fashion Accessory,
Industrial, Graphics and other associated fields for a local Japanese firm soon influenced my direction towards a new dimension and art form in Contemporary or Modern Art.
