Hi and welcome to ARTleneStudio! I am Arlene Obmerga-van Vegchel, the aspiring freelance artist behind ARTleneStudio. I am a self-taught artist based in the Netherlands. Most of my career was spent practicing development communication in the Philippines, my homeland. I shifted to painting in December 2015. It started as an interest, which turned into a hobby, and has since become a passion. I am drawn to the glow and vibrancy of watercolors and acrylics and the challenges that come in painting in these media. The collection of my paintings ranges from serene landscapes and seascapes to colorful flowers in season as well as festive Filipino traditions. I opened my shops on Etsy and Saatchi Art to share my artworks with you, to continue doing what I love to do (i.e. painting and creating illustrations), and to support some charitable causes. Every piece in my shops is crafted with passion and dedication to fine workmanship. I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for and come back for other items that will be available soon. When you buy my artworks, 10 percent of profit will be donated to Project PEARLS. Support my art and the poorest Filipino children.
