How to purchase my creative works

First, thank you for visiting my site and the interest in my creative works! I truly appreciate it. You may go to my Instagram page to see the photo, mosaic, and mandala art works that you might be interested in. For the prints, you can order them as prints-only or framed. (You can also click on any image at the grid below for the latest posts.)

Below are samples of how your wall could look like with my creative works.

Personalized mandala art with your mantra or favorite quotation

You can request for the inclusion of your personal mantra or favorite quotation at no additional charge.

[Nevertheless, you can also use the current ones that are already available in my Instagram account.]

Note: The mandala art work is mine but I have sourced a mock-up wall online (ctto).

Let your wall speak of arts, love, and hope

Choose your favorite photos /mandalas in my Instagram and let me do the rest.

I am a student of a diploma course on interior design and can also help you with the design of your walls at home and in the office.

I can also be commissioned to paint mandalas directly on your wall.

Handcrafted mosaic mirrors

If you’re looking for unique mirrors to adorn your home, mosaic design may be a perfect match. I can be commissioned for customized works.

The set in the image here (a set of 3) is still available.

Please contact me for the price.

The complete price list will be posted here soon. Have a wonderful time designing your lovely homes and offices!

About the Images and Acknowledgement

My approach to photography is very basic. I take a picture to capture a moment, to help me remember how each moment intertwines with my story and the stories of people around me. I do not want to impress. I ‘re-create’ these images–I can never create them for there is only one creator–because I want to celebrate the beauty around me. That is all there is to it.

Admittedly, I never learned how to use Photoshop (and other photo editing software) and I think I wanted it to stay that way, at least for now. I do not want to rely on photo editing techniques so much at this stage so I can truly learn the art and essence of taking pictures, in the most basic and personal sense.  I also normally use ambient light so some of my works may actually be over- or underexposed (wink!). Therefore, if I needed to make some minor adjustments, for example, in the saturation of color or lighting, I just simply use the software that goes with my DSLR (or phone camera). In some cases, I will apply filter that is available in Instagram or Fotor.

I would like to thank my photography teacher, Jimmy Domingo, for the lessons that he gave us when we were still active in an environmental volunteer group that I had founded. His talent and generosity of spirit will always be remembered and appreciated. Salamat sa iyo, Teacher Jimmy!

I would also like to thank my husband, JR Suarin, for being a supportive and loving partner and friend, a fun-loving travel companion (who always carries my bag so I can easily take pictures), and the best-ever ‘personal chef’. Our journeys together make me a better and richer person.

Most of all, I thank our Supreme Being, our God-source-divine, for the magic and colors of this universe. The beauty in the images that come out of our lenses comes from where there is unending love. S/he will always be the Source of light and miracles.

Happy viewing!

      Hi Doc Cats! Super thankful as well to have met you today! Hubby and I are grateful and blessed that your spa & skin clinic was just across the car A/C repair shop so we (especially me!) had a “refuge” while the vehicle’s compressor was being replaced. You, your staff, and your services are very much appreciated. πŸ™‚ Thanks also to Marissa, Christy, and Lisa (I hope I remembered their names!). God bless you and your business! P.s. You may want to talk with the AC repair shop across and request them to hand out your flyers to their clients who are waiting as their cars are being fixed. πŸ™‚ They may want to do this if you give them a little incentive like referral fees or free treatments. πŸ™‚
