About the Author

     "Walang pera sa Fine Arts (There's no money in Fine Arts)", said my parents when I told them what I wanted to take in college. So instead I studied Architecture and graduated in 1996.

      I never get to design for an architectural firm. But I've worked as a store planner, a visual display artist, and a furniture designer. I've also designed housewares and decor, fashion accessories and jewelry, and even graphic media. All under different companies in the span of 9 years.

    Then I got tired of designing - for non-creative bosses, for companies with limited facilities that put restrictions to a designer's creativity, for those who expected more but provided less.

     In 2007 I worked as an office clerk in my father's distributor company and lived a carefree life for 3 years. I became weary and found no fulfillment in what I do. I realized, an artist like me lives to create.

     So here I am now in a journey, discovering along the way, to a place where a sustainable relationship exists between my art, my talents, and myself. Sacrifices are being made to get there. I've turned my back on my comfort zone, my financial well-being, in the pursuit of my goals as a self-employed artist. Now this indeed is the bohemian life.
