Racing clouds hover over a small quaint town in Amsterdam, with houses in their traditional deep red colored roofs. The windmill, which is centrally positioned in my painting, deserves our attention, not only because it harmoniously complete the landscape, it is also functional. It helps the village fight water shortage. The position of the sails of the windmill speaks its own language, which is clear to all who can read it. The sails turn counterclockwaise. In this instance, they signal “rest for a long period.” Hence, we have the water pond tranquil and quiet, shimmery in this beauty.
Tourists and locals alike, savor this sight of kaleidoscope rows of red, pink, purple, magenta, yellow and orange tulip bulbs basking in the sunshime.
Just near you, are blooming giant purple and pink tulips to pick and take with you to your homes - to give you a lasting impression as it gave me.
As a painter, I am inspired by the diverse cultures and people on our planet. I also like to capture the beauty in the mundane objects and places. By exploring my personal and spiritual connection with nature through my interpretation of God's creation, I strive to create images that transport the viewers to a different state of mind. I want them to experience something new that they have not noticed in the past.
Utilizing both my illustrative instinct that I acquired through years of experience in Graphic Design and my modern stylistic technique, I am able to explore the art of painting to achieve a sense of self-fulfillment. My style and my love of color give me a sense of freedom and joy in creating, which, in turn achieve a sense of motion and emotion in my work.
Armed with the design elements of line, shape, color, contrast. value, balance and texture, I particularly like to experiment with different materials like fine sand, burlap, sinamay fabric (woven in the Philippines), rice grains and paper to accomplish a richness in texture or to evoke depth. My repertoire of tools include, but not limited to brush, palette knife, toothbrush, sponge, opaque and thinning mediums, wet on wet and glazing. Different mediums allow me to express different ideas in a unique and personal way. Each and every single piece contains a fragment of myself, created in an effort to unearth myself or sometimes even heal myself.
I strive to make my paintings speak out their innermost depth, conveying the message of healing energy and hope.
