Iris Buenconsejo

Multi-Disciplined Creative

Cavite, Philippines
I am a creative artist with the impulse to drive myself and my work to perfection. My exposure to several fields of art during my childhood became the foundation of the artist that I am today. I started traditional art as early as the age of five. I have been mostly self-taught with my knowledge in graphic & web design (13 years with Adobe Photoshop; 5 years with Adobe Illustrator) and took up interior design classes in college. I have landed several jobs as a freelancer in fashion, real estate, online retail, skincare and travel agency companies seeking a designer to carry out their ideas.

My skills include graphic design, illustration, interior design & consultancy, marketing, photography, culinary/baking & writing
