I’ve been illustrating and designing for the longest as a profession for commercial work.
Not so long ago, I was encouraged to work on my personal art. The output ranged from freehand lettering found randomly in pages of my planner, illustrations and watercolor drawings filled my softbound sketchbook and tried my luck on abstract paintings on larger canvases. All this time I’ve spent on building personal works was able to relieve stress.
I was able to not only build a portfolio, but also define my style of work. Something I’ve been frustrated and yes, stressed about for some time.
Since it helped me overcome not only hurdles in my struggles as a visual creative but also how I’m dealing with life in a better perspective. As a way to give back, we’ve collaborated with Buhay Movement aligned to their cause as one of the leading mental health advocates as who also recommend art and crafts as a means of an outlet.
On June 9, 2018 at Gift Avenue Cafe we invite all to learn on how to create beautiful acrylic florals at Flower Power, workshop for a cause.
Proceeds will go to Buhay Movement, a group that promotes mental health awareness.
Workshop is inclusive of materials and food.
