MANILA, PHILIPPINES — From fashion apparel to dinnerware, artist Feanne casts deep hooks into nature with her whimsical, detailed illustrations. She primarily draws inspiration from Philippine flora and fauna, and uses intricate linework to combine an obvious love for nature with her own creative flair.
Based in the Philippines, Feanne is an illustrator and textile designer who has been exhibiting and publishing her work for over 15 years. In 2019, she was one of eight designers selected to showcase their work at the PHx Tokyo exhibition. The program, spearheaded by the Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM), introduced emerging designers from the Philippines into the Japanese fashion market.
“I’m very lucky to have had the opportunity to work with these creative brands. It’s always exciting to be able to see my art in different contexts,” Feanne told adobo Magazine.
Not shying away from different forms and mediums, Feanne has worked on projects with Adobe, Princesse Tam Tam (Fast Retailing), Town & Country, La Mer, Sunlight Air, and Shangri-la Mactan. At present, she continues to produce her own line of wearable art pieces such as silk scarves and reversible kimonos.
