Born in the Philippines and trained as an Architect, Orville's first passion is painting. He started doodling in watercolor and acrylic in grade school, but pursued a more technical career in architecture.
He migrated to the US in 2001, working as an architectural designer, illustrator, 3D renderer and design project manager. But the painting bug keep pursuing him. In the summer of 2020, when all things slowed down due to covid 19, he dug up his brushes, joined painting clubs and the rest is history.
Though he does oil and acrylic and other media, he loves the nuances and challenges of watercolor, as reflected in most of his recent works.
