Art found me when I was a young girl, nurtured by the oil paintings of my grandfather, a self-taught artist. Years later, while I was studying Interior Design at UP Diliman—another form of art in my heart—my love for watercolor was ignited at the summer workshops that I joined.
But it wasn’t until November 2016 that I embraced watercolor painting in full expression and pursuit. Watercolor, for me, captures the fluidity and translucence not palpable in other media. Its immediacy and effervescence provide a more spontaneous and energetic expression as a brushstroke releases water and pigment to do their work.
My watercolor journey has been blessed by art lessons locally and internationally under masters such as Yuko Nagayama of Japan, Alvaro Castagnet of Uruguay, Charles Reid of America, Stanley Miller of America, and Eudes Correa of Portugal. These master colorists imparted a lasting impression on the style that I would later harness as my own.
I am thankful to journey with others by conducting watercolor workshops through Pinky Peralta Studio as well as to grow with other artists as a member of the Philippine Guild of Watercolorists.
And as I continue to evolve and mature as an artist, I am excited to share my own vision and sensibility at a one-woman show in November 2020.
Aspects of the sublime creation and its magnificent elements move me to paint.It's like partaking on the masterpiece creation aspect itself.
I start with a blank paper . I allow the day to unfold and let the paint forms itself intuitively .It's like I get lost in it, and I needed to finish and even I get excited to see the final outcome.
Divine. Fluid. Soulful
I like the works of Nita Engel, Charles Reid, Yuko Nagayama .
Water and paper
Don't be afraid to take risks and fail
