Hello! I illustrated a children’s book recently that accompanies a fairy house for Dreamland Fairy. Illustrating this book was quite an accomplishment for me, since I was freelancing, working part time at a very demanding AD agency, and most importantly caring for my 9 months old twins. It was all the more rewarding to get such nice reviews. So go to the website.

Hello world. Thank you for all that purchased the calendars!

Albeit small, I created and selling a 6×6 calendar of 12 illustrations of my work. ALL proceeds will go to REDCROSS for the Typhoon Yolanda innocent victims in the Philippines. I’m asking for $11.00 each, it comes along with a 4×6 card (see image) plus $2.00 shipping. Of course, if you want to donate more, that is more than welcome, it is going to a much needed cause. The Philippines is my birth country, so this is very close to my heart. My mind is on the parents that are now childless and the children that are now parentless and for the wounded who are slowly losing their life because they have no aid while other who have more pressing injuries to be taken cared of first. As many of you know, many provinces in the Philippines have been struck by Typhoon Yolanda, many are homeless, many who lost their loved ones. Send me a private message here if you are interested and I promise you that your donation will go directly to REDCROSS and plus you’ll get some decent art along with it. Or you can donate on your own. If I ask for anything, this is it. Please Donate to a non-government organization that can aid these victims directly. Nothing is too small, these people will continue to need help. It will, in my heart, hope to help the wounded, the homeless, the hungry and thirsty, and help the lost find their way back to their family and home and more importantly the lost children will remain with their relatives. Thank you.

Please go to my etsy shop to purchase. I will keep everyone updated of how much we have put together to help the filipino people.

  • ART Q U O T E S

    I am essentially a painter of the kind of still life composition that communicates a sense of tranquillity and privacy, moods which I have always valued above all else.
    ::: Giorgio Morandi :::

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
    ::: Andrew Wyeth :::

    A sincere artist is not one who makes a faithful attempt to put on to canvas what is in front of him, but one who tries to create something which is, in itself, a living thing.
