ABOUT THE ARTIST

“It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances. The mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible.” – Oscar Wilde.

I am a painter and digital artist. My favorite process is working with photo montage and collage.
I am from Palawan Island in the eastern Philippines. My art is a conversation, a storytelling in visual form. I am drawn to paint my experiences to position myself as an individual that is aware about his surroundings and other people’s stories. My art is neither an escape, nor an alternative Utopian solution but as a vantage point for depicting reality as I experienced it. I love depicting the sea, the people living in the island communities and the ocean environment, because this is my place ,world.

Thank you for visiting my page. I hope you like my images; the mediums I always used for the artworks are acrylic and watercolor on paper. For the drawing medium I used the pen and ink, some works posted here are sold, some are still available; you can have a copy of my paintings through prints and t shirts.
My recent works are collage.

all my artworks are my own copyright unauthorized use is prohibited by applicable laws.
