I tell stories

through water and color


Learning and Development

My artistic journey started in Manila with a degree in Marketing from De La Salle University. I was in Learning and Development as a Management Trainer and while I liked what I did, it wasn't what I loved.


3D Animation

In 2009, I left my job to pursue art by enrolling in a basic 3D animation and multimedia course. Eight thousand hours and 1 demo reel later, I abandoned it. Although it was art, there was still something missing.


Black & White Portraiture

Between 2010 - 2014, my resilient search for my passion evolved into Black and White Portraiture injecting humor, elegance to the overall character of each piece.



I am currently living in Vancouver, Canada, working on several projects that involve:

I hope that my art can convey the stories and feelings

Art is a reflection of the Self

Art, much like any endeavor worth pursuing, is very personal.


The tactile feel of pencil on paper or laying down the first wash, brushing that bead of water and pigment down the paper, is both exciting and relaxing. Each painting that I do has a meaningful message or story to be shared.



The pure color and ala prima style of Charles Reid, the atmospheric feel and calligraphic short hand of a Joseph Zbukvic, the bold strokes of an Alvaro Castagnet painting, the moodiness of a Herman Pekel or the impeccable design of a Thomas Schaller have contributed much to my own journey to discovering my style.

There are lots of things to take inspiration from yet the dizzying pace of life as we know it will always get in the way.

My art has allowed me to experience moments

where all I  can just be. Present.

Art has allowed me to be. Present.



If we can find more of these moments, we would be reminded to slow down, appreciate and cherish the one life we have and the world around us with a different set of eyes.

Cherish the one life we have
