“Ting” Lagura started painting at a very early age. She is a product of the Ford Academy of Davao. She spent 10 years in the academe teaching arts to elementary pupils. She later on conducted art workshops for children and adult hobbyists for 15 years. She has devoted her time to painting, exhibitions, and managing her craft store, Kitz House of Creations. It specializes in hand-painted bags, clothing, and souvenir items. She also accepts commissioned works. Ting was recently adopted by T’boli Community as one of their own and her present artworks reflect this newfound advocacy and inspiration. She years to promote the culture of the T’boli and other tribes to her works to keep it alive and increase public awareness. She was baptized Bae Demuyan by the tribe. Ting loves oil as her painting medium and experiments different surfaces as a canvas.

My recent visit to Lake Sebu allowed me to immerse myself in the living traditions of the T’boli tribe. I learned of their efforts and struggles in preserving their culture and heritage. It was a light bulb experience for me. It inspired me to follow a path that I have never trodden before. It moved me to start advocacy. I hope to be instrumental in telling the world about T’boli and other Philippine tribes, and consequently, help them in their livelihood. Thus, my current work gives you a glimpse of their day-to-day living tradition, culture, and heritage. It brings you to a world deserving of your recognition and appreciation.
