bernie foto 900Bernie has had been a teacher in arts and music in different international schools in Thailand until he decided to enjoy the full time lifestyle of being an artist. He exhibits with Thai and other international artists here in Thailand and in the Philippines. Traveling to different provinces and places in Thailand and the Southeast Asia inspires him to find the “truth” of being a true member of the ASEAN community.

Being a true citizen of the Southeast Asian community is a responsibility to embrace. We promote the culture and values of these colourful countries. The years of being exploited are over. it is our time now to shine, to let the world understand that we know how explore and find the beauty in our race. We take the pride in letting the world know.

Funny how foreigners come to our countries with their cameras and they go home with all of the images and information taken during their explorations; as they go home, they publish books, telling about our hidden worlds and cultures, as if they are they only people who discovered us. We have already found and discovered ourselves, let us make the whole world know about that.
