Positivity and connectedness are constant themes in my painting and poetry. I take inspiration from the simple joys of my youth growing up on a tropical island. I was the youngest of 6 – there was always a sharing of food and stories at our very long dining table. It doesn’t come as a surprise that gestures of caring and connecting often appear in my work. And inspired by the many hours of hide and seek from my childhood, I love to hide life metaphors and social commentaries between the layers of color and whimsy in my work.
Paulina Constancia (she/her) is a Filipino-Canadian creative spirit with many different mediums of expression. Born and raised on the island of Cebu, Philippines, Paulina immigrated to Canada in her early 30’s as a self-employed cultural contributor in her capacity as a visual artist. Her experience in design and music coupled with her educational background in communications and languages developed in her a visual storyteller who finds form, rhythm and a story waiting to be told wherever she goes. She creates with the island spirit in her heart, highlighting the essence of things, painting simple joys and genuine connectedness. Paulina creates full time from her home in Vancouver which she shares with her husband, teenage son and adult cat.
