I was born and raised in the Philippines. I started drawing when I was a first grader and known artist student in every school I have attended.
I illustrated medical caricature in a weekly journal magazine for several years while working in the hospital abroad. I love to draw people and landscapes in different manners like caricature, illustration or realistic.
I'm self-taught artist but after retirement from job, I studied Cartooning Art thru correspondence study for basic technique, knowledge and information about the course. I turned full time and able to focus both drawing and painting and which medium will go best with my favorite images. I tried different mediums but as for now, Iím getting accustomed with watercolor , pen and ink or both especially on caricature.
My people images focus primarily on lifestyle, largely based on folks and friendís interesting and inspiring story and event that are permissible and portrayable to art. I append or produce more people or matters in the background that suits the subject and humor for caricature.
Landscapes are mostly about coastal or maritime scenes that came from my snap shots along the Gig Harbor area where I live and some from nearby places.
