The Ojai Valley in California is my birthplace, home and special muse.
I lived in the Philippines for most of my childhood and as a student had opportunities to study at art schools and studios in the United States, Japan and England. A main concern in painting for me is to find marks, passages and colors that mirror formative life experiences, narratives and vision.
 
Art is infinitely larger than the individual; art makers bear much of the responsibility for moving forward a uniquely human activity with thought, imagination and curiosity.
