Embracing my freedom means expressing my emotions and vast imagination through art. As a self-taught painter, abstract painting is my way of voicing out my radical thoughts through my brushes and palette knives with no rules to live by. This personal work of art is my obsession with colors, patterns, lines and dimensions.

The current pandemic took a heavy toll to the livelihood of our farmers in Central Luzon, Philippines and because of this, their produce is currently at the lowest price. I came across @ForOurFarmersPh – Bayanihan Para sa Magsasaka, a grassroot non-profit organization that provides food packs to our farmers in Pangasinan, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija and Pampanga. As a descendant of farmers from Tarlac, I feel personally concerned about the sufferings of our farmers. To help provide food packs to our heroes, all paintings posted are for sale and 70% of the profit will be donated to ForOurFarmersPh. This initiative does not end to helping our farmers, I would like to also extend some help to buy school kits that include a tablet for the scholars (children of farmers) so they can participate in the ‘new normal’ of distance-learning.

All paintings posted on my website are for sale. I reserve the rights to the sold artwork/painting. The sale of the panting does not include transfer or assignment of my copyright over the same. Please do not reprint, publish, multiply, exhibit, represent or reproduce the same, in any manner, for sale or for profit.
