Jesamine V. Totañes- Wiersema ( JVTotañes ) was born in Butuan City, Philippines in 1982. She started to draw when she was small.

Studied BA in Psychology in the Philippines, and studying Classical Academy of Fine Arts in the Netherlands. 

Art became her comfort, way to express sadness and joy. Art is her channel to socialize, and later on became her career. 

Her works are loose , vivid and expressive. She’s a multi-media artist. Her style plays in between the boundaries of real  and abstract.

Favourite subjects, urban scene and portraits/people.

She loves carrying a sketchbook and sketch on the spot. While sketching she loves to use gouache paint, watercolor, pen and ink. The final result of her work is as important as the process.
