Paris Series

I love Paris and these series shows the different things I love about beautiful and romantic Paris: their cafes, famous parks and monuments, flowers, countryside landscapes and things I enjoyed doing during my visits there.

Divas

 

The Diva series is a collection of portraits dedicated to all the beautiful women of the Philippines to capture the elegance of the Filipinas proudly wearing their distinctive national costume called the Philippine terno - a lavishly designed gown with butterfly sleeves - symbolizing elegance and sophistication.

In 2015, Miss Philippines won the Miss Universe beauty pageant inspiring me to celebrate the beauty of the Filipinas who won in 4 major beauty pageants: Miss Universe, Miss World, Miss International and Miss Earth.

Peking Opera Bitches


The Peking Opera Bitch series is a collection of portraits celebrating modern Peking Opera women.  The "Dans" - the female role in Peking Opera was played by men until the early 20th century. Old women were play by laodan, martial women were wudan "female warrior", young female warriors were daomadan "sword and horse women warriors", virtuous, noble and elite women were qingyi "blue robed women", and vivacious unmarried coquettish women were hua dan, "flower women".

 

Red symbolizes good fortune, fire, vitality, happiness and celebration. It is used during Chinese New Year and other holidays. Red is also the color in Chinese weddings, representing good luck, joy and happiness. Yellow or Gold is the color of beauty and nobility and signifies power and wealth and was the imperial color for the Emperor's throne.

Ma Belle Salope Asiatique
Ma Belle Salope Asiatique means "My Beautiful Asian Bitch" in French.

 

Floral Fantasies

Flowers are the universal words to say "I love you". These flowers use color pencil and sequins to enhance their happy vibrant color.

 

Geisha Portraits

These Geisha portraits are a blend of color pencil and collage that express the different moods of the Geisha.

 

Land of Oz

These drawings were inspired by my trips to Sydney, Australia.  I was intrigued by the aboriginal art and their usage of dots on dark wood, dark paper, and/or dark cloth juxtaposed against each other to create colorful intricate patterns and designs which hold symbolic meaning in their indigenous tribal art. 

I imitated their Papunya dot style and created my own artworks on black paper using color pencil to immerse the Chinese characters (I, Love, You) and surrounded them with colored dots. After visiting the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney, I was seduced by their colorful species of exotic flowers. With these beautiful floral images freshly implanted in my mind, I began to create my manifestation of botanical fantasy drawings.

Madame Butterfly


To me, Madame Butterfly is always a Geisha.  She is the contemporary Geisha of the 21st Century.  In the new millennium she still holds onto the traditional aspects of the Geisha; wearing the kimono, complete with white face make-up, lipstick, hair combs, and the up-swept hair-do.  I depict her breaking out of this ancient mold by opening up her kimono revealing herself to others and allowing herself to be unbound by the obi tie exposing her most feminine quality to us; the cleavage.
 
Beautiful Madame Butterfly caresses herself gently and shows us her sensual side. She entices us with her demure looks, and quiet sensuous demeanor.  She is the feminine energy in all of us looking and wearing eye shadow in every painting and peering at something, never looking directly at us.  Her head is bowed, but it is her mood that captivates us. 

Ma Belle Salope Chinoise

Madame Butterfly is alone in her garden late at night while the moon is out contemplating upon the lovers in her life. Flowers play a major part of the painting; they represent the different men in her life.  She gazes at the flowers with the moon behind her watching her choose the flowers. 

 

“The Flowers represent the men who come and go in my life”
