Mean was born in 1988 and is a proud Cebuana. At an early age, she started working with colored pens and oil pastels due to her fascination with anime characters, but this halted for a while due to other priorities.
In 2014, she tried doing sketches again using charcoal pencils, this time of human portraits which led to her first commission.
The following year, she was invited to display her artworks for Music and Arts Night with local singer Kitchie Nadal. This was her first exhibit. She has then on been invited to exhibit in other events with other local visual artists.
A huge fan of the band group The Beatles, Mean has made several artworks featuring the members of this band and all these became a hit with her art followers and admirers. She is one artist in Cebu who has extensive collection of Beatles’ inspired paintings.
Mean studied Computer Science, although her first love is the arts. Although lacking in any formal art education, she was able to hone her talent by practicing and by learning from her art mentors.
Charcoal Drawing is her main medium; however, she experiments with different art techniques and mediums including oil paints, ballpoint pens, Coffee, and soft pastels to achieve expansions to her expertise.
Mean is active in local art shows and is the Coordinator at ArtCebu.
