About the Artist:
As a child growing up in the Philippines, I was always fascinated by the different colors, shapes like the ever-changing shapes of the clouds, the waves of the ocean
and the different kind of trees and flowers. I use to draw them without proper guidance on how to draw in elementary school and in high school.

After University, work and having family my interest in art did not come again until my husband signed me in a Drink and Draw party at the Halifax River Yacht Club few years ago. My interest in art came back and started having lessons online by Bill Inman, Amy Bohling, lessons from different Artist in Ormond and Daytona Beach, Artist from Ormond Art Museum, Artist from Daytona Art League and Artist from Queen Mary2 cruise line, etc.

Artist Statement:
My love of Florida and my Asian background interest me to do paintings of the Ocean, flowers and trees. I am usually attracted to Seascapes and landscapes but
lately I have been interested in abstraction. I am more of an impressionistic and a little of realism. I like to use in my paintings vibrant and bold colors and imaginative design of my own.
