MEDIUM: Oil Paint | Acrylic Paint
SPECIALTY: ✔ Plein Air, ✔ Technique & Demos, ✔ Generalist 

Nature is good for the soul. Through my artwork, I aim to create the healing effects of nature on our mind, body, and soul.

I began painting when I was 10 years old. Since then, I’ve taken many art workshops both in the Philippines and in Canada. Acrylic and Oils are my favorite paint mediums. I begin each piece with a loose abstract process. Then I add details and textures using both a brush and a palette knife. 

My subject matter explores the relationship between nature and people. 

I love to create paintings which reflect the beauty, peace and harmony of our natural world.

My inspiration comes from canoeing and interior camping in Algonquin and surrounding highlands. The peace of being surrounded by nature’s beauty allows my spirit to rejuvenate.

I hope to capture the healing benefits of nature in my paintings. Nature provides me with inner peace. It is where I can connect with the land and renew my inner spirit.
