Art is not a job. It is a way of seeing and recording life.
Great and awesome experiences in my life were filled with interesting and challenging people I know - the ones who helped pave the way for my dreams from coming true.. people who have inspired me.
I design what my eyes want to see, what my mind thinks and what my heart yearns to share to people. From smallest pieces to big ones. I do them passionately.
When i was about to finish high school, I never thought of going to college anymore. Though, I had plan taking Interior Design, i never got a chance to take exams in universities.
But God’s will always prevail. We plan things we want, even think of doing stuffs just for our sake. but God knows what’s best for us. whatever plans we have.. His will always succeed.
Out of hundred universities in Manila, I just tried one. And never thought of passing because I’m not really into studying yet. It’s not that I wanna be an out-of-school girl, It’s just that, “may naiisip akong ibang gawin”.
Funny thing was.. they have this course na gusto ko din…second option kung sakali.. but there was this lady who discouraged me. She said it would be better if I take and study that course abroad. Whoah! naisip ko naman she was right. But then, the school is not offering an Interior Design course. So I thought, ‘di pa talaga time for me. I roamed arounf the school and saw the othercourses, and found that they have something related to what I’m preferring to take up.
I never became best among our class. I just did what I’m supposed to do as a student and as a designer.. I love doing things na kahit ‘di magugustuhan ng tao, sige pa rin. Things that sometimes, ‘ndi na practical sa ‘Pinas’. I want to combine everything I believe na pwede. Kaya when it comes to design, I prefer something asymmetrical. “ayoko ng may pattern”.. But I never dream of being great, all I want was to learn what should be learned and do what must be done.
After 3 years, I decided to look for a job. I worked as a Designer/Visual Merchandiser in a well-known company here in the Philippines. After of almost 2 years there, I decided to be serious with my skills and put a business of my own. And that’s what keeps me busy right now. I’m about to open a shop where my designs can be purchased.
This is my dream and I love to do everything i want without thinking what others might tell about me. I love to be in fashion industry, not for fame but to express my passion for it. To help those people who also want to express their personalities and characters but don’t know where and how to get into it.
But fashion is really not just what I want to do. ….
I will never forget putting my heart to my first dream job back in High school.
I do love spaces, proportions, textures and all there is in it. I’m so much into designing different kinds of structures without sacrificing financial aspect and taking the knowledge of various arts in the Philippines or around the globe.
I thought I won’t appreciate the world of Architecture before. But realizing that craving for the knowledge of Interior Design would not be enough, I want to learn more and study the ABC’s of Architecture and the use of people on how to express each of their culture..
Though I kept thinking about T-shirts and how to make a perfect one.
I love Architecture [interior design], as much as I love fashion. It’s both where I want to be..
Because Fashion and Architecture both have the same tendency to reflect culture.
Fashion is fast. Architecture needs more time.
I believe God will help me. With all these dreams, i know i must put Him first and…
”siya nang bahala sa akin..”
