Airees RondainVisual Artist. Storyteller. Entrepreneur. Eco-Warrior.
Hi, I’m Airees. I’m an artist currently based in the Philippines and I love merging ART with SUSTAINABILITY by using my artworks to design and create sustainable and meaningful handmade paper products, hence, ART+SUSTAINABILITY.
– I’ve always believed that ART HEALS. (Making art got me out of depression)
– Everyone has a story worth telling. (You matter.)
– It’s never too late to go after your dreams. (I painted again when I turned 40, after 24 years!)
– There is no planet B.
– Live with passion, purpose and intention. (Otherwise, we are just existing.)
“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to live the width of it as well.”- Diane Ackerman

Of Milk Teas, Smoothies and Pinoy Comfort Foods
I’ve always been fascinated with food presentation and packaging. I find joy in just looking at the pastries behind the glass display and wondering when can I paint them the soonest. So when I went on my 8-week hiatus (a.k.a. “self-directed artist residency”), I fully immersed myself on painting my “dream food and drinks” - “dream” because I will only eat/drink them in my dreams! LOL!

My Own Line of Washi Stickers
Mid-2019, I was on the verge of mental breakdown for looking after 4 humans, 1 dog and myself. I took an 8-week hiatus from housework (mom-daughter-Inday-driver duties), packed my bags and went overseas to give myself a break and allow myself to just make art for the sake of creating. I called it “self-directed artist residency”. 😊 Little did I know that that 8-week hiatus will be a start of yet another adventure...

Week 7 - 52 Weeks of Christian Mindfulness
I did a self-check: “I’m okay. I’m at peace.”, I told myself. I can’t help but smile. 😊 You see, from the many years that passed, I never liked this day because I was bitter (bitter daw o! 🤣) - it brings back bad memories and resentments, and now, my long distance relationship with my husband. But today, it’s different.
