Honed her skills in New York. Lives and works in the Philippines.
A semi-retired businesswoman, an emerging artist, mother of four grown up children, a late-bloomer in the field of visual arts, she embarked on a new career as a visual artist by accident. She dabbled in all sorts of creative activities since she was a child but never thought of making a career out of it.
Took up formal lessons in drawing and sculpture using clay and cold cast resin in 2014.
First exhibit at Alay Sining, an annual nationwide sculpture exhibit organized by Rotary Club Makati West.
First works sold by Galeria de las Islas in Intramuros, Manila. Soon, she was invited in other group exhibits and as she did this more often, became bored with cold cast resin and tried her hand in bronze casting. After a few bronze pieces, she decided to take her hobby more seriously, relinquished management of her Pharmaceuticals business to her eldest son.
Accepted at the world-renowned Corning Museum of Glass (CMOG) in Corning, New York in 2015. The glass sculpture pieces that she made in CMOG, she brought home were all sold out. She has been a member of the Glass Art Society based in Seattle, Washington, USA, since 2015.
In 2016, she applied and was granted a scholarship at the same institution so she again went back to CMOG to pursue further studies of the coldworking glass sculpture technique.
On February 2017, she had her first Solo exhibition for her glass sculpture at Ricco Renzo Gallery in Makati. In the same year, she had her second solo exhibition for glass sculptures at Galerie Joaquin. They were all sold out shows.
In 2018, she was accepted at The Glassmaking School of Kamenicky Senov, Czech Republic. The oldest glassmaking school in the world located at the Crystal Valley in Czech Republic. There she learned a new technique in glass sculpture which is Glass Casting and Mold Making.
The 3rd Solo Exhibtion entitled Magnum Opus was held from March to April 2019 at the Solaire Gallery. She found the opportunity to use this new technique in the Solaire exhibit where she created a glass piano putting together all the glassmaking techniques she learned in the US and Europe.
To sharpen her skills in glass casting, she went back to CMOG in 2019 after the Solaire exhibit, taking up Lifecasting in Glass. Coming back to Manila, she had 2 more solo exhibits at Galerie Joaquin titled Inimitable Femme and the latest at Galerie Raphael Manila Art 2019 where first introduced a glass wall installation and a big glass piano.
To date, she has made several commissioned works for business establishments and private collectors’ residences and is also working on a huge glass installation project at one of the more prestigious resorts in the South.
