Awe-inspiring is the beauty of God’s creation that it can capture our hearts much like His love for us. It moves me to respond by recreating those special moments. With each mark, stroke, layer and splatters of ink and paint on paper—my senses are rekindled like seeing something for the first time.

Joy in Art


My interest in art was cultivated during my childhood years. After watching cartoon shows I would recreate the story by drawing it comic style on a lined notebook. I would imagine stories and fill pages with various drawings. I also enjoyed leafing through children’s books or any books that have pictures on it and recreating them in my own way, dreaming to make a living out of art.

Perseverance & Patience

Moving into adulthood, my enthusiasm in art was still fresh even if I have moved to a different path (temporarily). Still my heart is thankful to God for I know He always has a purpose wherever he placed us. He sanctify and equip us for the work that He has prepared for us beforehand (Ephesians 2:10).

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

Ephesians 2:10
Even though the in-betweens were painful and challenging, God’s grace was enough. He has given me an opportunity to teach art and do creative work. My desire is to honor Him in all that I do and to bring the light of Jesus wherever I am placed. All by His grace.

Sketch in Pen & Watercolor Painting

I started sketching in pen and painting in watercolor in 2011. They are my favorite medium in making art because they are portable, enabling me to freely express the beauty of this world. Learning how to sketch in pen and paint in watercolor requires much patience, determination, and practice. Whether it is painting or sketching– it is essential to do it often to train those creative muscles. Aside from books and online resources, what I find most helpful is the connections that I have made with other artists through participation in various creative activities.

CREATIVE

I enjoy painting nature and places.  
I am strongly drawn to vivid colors, sunlight, shadows, mundane lives,
quiet, old things, patterns, and nature. 

 

My style is loose, often colorful with bits of spatters,
and the occasional monochrome.

 


But we urge you…, to (love) more and more, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands…

1 Thessalonians 4:9-12

Lifelong Journey

I strongly believe in the importance of having fun and creativity when making art.  Making mistakes is essential for learning and growth.  My desire is to teach and encourage the beginner artist to play and explore sketching in pen and painting in watercolor using one’s senses.
