Growing up in the Philippines my grandfather taught me how to create something out of old materials. My first creation, with the help of my grandfather, was a semi truck made from a tree trunk. That gift that was taught and given to me is still with me today. When I start designing my next piece I do not stop until I am done. I enjoy creating from the simplest things using materials such as old inner tubes, mirrors, and vintage door knobs. Each creation inspires me to go further and bolder.
I make mirrors and other designs out of recycled bicycle inner tubes and bicycle parts.
I mostly specialize in contemporary style framed mirrors but my sister's house is a mixture of shabby chic, vintage finds and Country French and one of my mirrors fits in just nicely with her style of decor.
So I hope you'll give one of my creations a chance, purchase one and enjoy its beauty hanging on your wall.
