Frelyn Faldas

Saskatchewan, Canada

My name is Frelyn. For those who don't really know how to pronounce my name, the first syllable sounds like fray and the second one sounds like "lin".

I'm an artist from head-to-toe, inside out. I just love to create things, whatever it may be. I can't stay with just one thing for a long time. I just love to explore and experience new things. I frequently take a lot of road trips across Canada, where I currently live in, and they just take my mind off from problems.

Right now I'm an illustrator. But I don't take commissions anymore because I spending more time with my family and friends and connect with other people outside of my comfort zone.

I was born in a tropical country called the Philippines. Now that I live in Canada it's pretty hard trying to connect with my family and my old friends but I try because they are important to me.

One of the most important things in my life is knowing who I am. I've had to learn the hard way that I create things and I'm not someone who likes what's already been made. I sometimes think very ambitiously and always look towards the future. It really helps a lot to know that I've been born to create things, so that makes me feel different from the sea of people who still have to find themselves and from those who want to be like others. I'm just happy of who I am and I hope that others get to have that privilege.
