Portrait of an artist: BETSY WESTENDORP

The first time I met this gracious artist was when she had her first solo show in Davao City arranged by her nephew and a friend, Tony Brias. The proceeds of which went to a good cause.

Being a fan of her works (the Poppy Flowers collection most especially) and extending my share of help for the show's cause, I had a couple of wonderful surprises that came my way at the end of the exhibition-- the artist gifted me with two of her works. 

Bestsy Westendorp is having another art exhibition at the White Space Gallery of the Manila Contemporary in Makati. 

I know I won't be able to make it on the opening day but I am crossing my fingers I can drop by the gallery and view her works anytime between January 16 and February 10.

If you're in Manila around these dates, why not check it out.
