St. Peter's Basilica is an Italian Renaissance church in Vatican City, the papal enclave within the city of Rome. St. Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and the largest church in the world. I chose to depict its splendor and majesty at dusk because of it's impact to one's senses.

The Grand Canal is lined up with a lot of buildings and many different passage ways around the city. Many tourists take advantage of the romantic transport, with a gondola ride along the canal, Unfortunately when I visited there was a storm and I remember this gondola fighting against the natural force of the water. This scene left a lasting memory in my mind.

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.
