Seeing everything as art and breathing life into it, Araceli LimcacoDans’ artworks are outstanding hymns to nature. The tip of her paintbrush produces exquisitely detailed flowers, seashells, trees, textiles on a hanging clothesline, and women and children in oil, watercolor, and acrylic that are equipped with a touch of whimsical flair. A symbolism of her femininity, Dans softly paints tissue-like laces known as her callado art—the exquisite pineapple or banana fiber-textile finely and artfully embroidered.

Mentored by the classical master Fernando Amorsolo during her student days at the University of the Philippines Fine Arts, Dans was indeed an outstanding student who strove to find her own voice in the local and international art scene.
