“Our mind is another universe” that is the belief strongly etched in the mind of Dumaguete based traditional/digital artist and registered nurse, Portia Bernadette N. Bation, the artist behind Portia Nemeño Art/Introtopia.
At an early age Portia aka Porsh has always been drawn to the world of visual arts, from sketching to clay sculptures and painting she creates images solely from her life experience and pure imagination. The aim of her art is to let people see the beauty of the “Unusual”.
She is currently working as a full time Illustrator and Graphic Designer for an Adult Coloring Book Company. Her art has evolved from traditional paintings to digital line arts, she believes that art is art no matter what form or medium it presents itself from.
