I love the freedom of Abstract Expressionism; freedom to use any color and create any shape, freedom from the boundaries of representational art. I paint with abandon applying paint with large, loose brush strokes combined with "calligraphy". My paintings capture the excitement of colors, lines and shapes that represent nothing and everything. Each of my paintings has a story to tell and it's up to you, the viewer, to discover it. The story may be different for each individual. It is personal and is influenced by your past experiences, your background. There is no right or wrong story. The story may change as your life changes and you look at my painting with a different eye. This is the beauty of abstract expressionism: it is only bounded by your imagination.
I exhibited my artistic inclination at an early age. From grade school thru high school I excelled in art classes and created posters for school activities. Although I hold a Masters degree in Computer Science I am always in touch with the artist within me. I studied drawing and painting at the Fine Arts Department of the University of the Philippines in Manila where I’m originally from, the Fine Arts Department of George Washington University in Washington, D.C. where I lived for a few years, and the Art Department of Brookdale Community College in Monmouth County, New Jersey where I currently reside with my husband. I studied Lyrical Abstract Expressionism at the Guild of Creative Arts and metal cutting and welding at the Shore Institute for the Contemporary Arts, both in Monmouth County.
