About Me

Grettalou Acmor Apolinar

Visual Artist

 

Gretta, as she is more known for, began her professional career as an educator and writer before deciding to divide her time to focus on her passion—the arts.

She began her foray into the creative world later in life having focused on a career in the academe with a stint in the design industry.

Gretta, a self-taught creative, identifies herself with art and design, both being her passion. In visual arts, her favored media is ink and acrylic, followed by mixed media. In the design industry, she loves to conceptualize and execute jewelry designs from beaded creations to wirework.

She continues to explore different avenues of expression and is currently studying sculpture and metalsmithing. She also dabbles in photography with landscapes and still lifes as her favorite subjects.
