Bids P. Llorin-Luna
Bids P. Llorin-Luna is a self-taught artist and a physician by profession. Her lifelong passion for art was unexpectedly awakened in 2016 with a coloring book for relaxation after a long tiring day at work. From a young age, she was exposed to art through her parents' photography business, which explains her affinity for portraits and realism. Her artworks are mostly inspired by her surroundings, career, and the people she loves.
She is an active member of the Philippine Guild of Watercolorists and the Philippine Pastel Artists, Inc., and has participated in several group exhibits since 2017 as well as other local and international art competitions. She recently received an Excellent Award from the IFAM Global 2023 Autumn Malaysia International Online Juried Art Competition in the Landscape category, and her paintings were among the top 80 in the IFAM Global 2023 Spring Malaysia International Online Juried Art Competition in the Still Life/Floral category.
Her art aims to evoke pleasant and joyful memories, inner peace, and calmness, and to find beauty in the most mundane aspects of everyday life amidst the chaos surrounding us. She believes that art can be used in the healing process, and she does not hesitate to share her art skills and donate her artwork to patients and friends in need.
