EMILIE DECENA 

ARTIST STATEMENT:

2015 was the karmic year that started my  journey as an artist.

I believe that art is not only drawn or painted but also written.

This piece is a glimpse of the moment I began the process of genuine acceptance that I didn’t have what I thought I had.

Accepting this truth was the beginning of inner peace that  moved me forward powerfully in life.

 It started me on an adventure of doing new things, traveling to new places, meeting new people and experiencing life again.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

My name is Emilie Decena. I was born in Manila, Philippines.

My first experience as an artist started at a period of my life when I realized that I can’t bypass and escape my feelings anymore.

 I can use paint and imagery as expressions of them.

I stay up painting all night and pour my feelings in acrylic colors.

Art has been my freedom.
