My artistically inclined family. Being born to a family with great inclination to the arts. It has always been my fascination to wonder at the beauty of the human body form. My late father was a commercial artist who used to be a lead illustrator in a military school in Saudi Arabia where he was once an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW). His sister, my aunt used to draw her own book illustrations to her students when she decided to put up a pre-school after retiring from the noble service of being a public school teacher, principal and district supervisor for almost 40 years in one of Manila's suburban area. I have a brother who studied architecture and was good in designing houses and buildings. When I was young, I used to draw and sketch on every note and paper I can hold unto. I used to draw things and vandalize my obra on our walls, ceilings and all bare planes I could sketch and draw. The human form. Growing, I used to look and read a lot about the human body which my father mistook as a sign of me going to study medicine or be a doctor. it was the mystery of how a human body can relate to different life moments that made me wonder most about the art and system of the human body. The switch. But my passion about the art switched from body form to numbers and wordsmithing. As I've studied Accountancy and become an Accountant instead. And pursue creative writing as a constant hobby. My passion about the art of the human form was greatly influenced by my following of several of today's known photographers like Howard Schatz and Jade Beall and many more.
