Welcome to my website! My name Chona Fe Canlas (BLOX) and I am the creative engine behind ChonaBLOX and Blox. Communications.
I love colour, composition and great design. My work is bright and bold and I am dramatic, oh-so-very serious.
As a child, I was obsessed with communication. With my mom’s help, I honed in the right skills through various after school programs – Toastmasters, sign language, calligraphy, creative writing, art classes – and this was all before entering high school. So, you can see WHY I’ve chosen a career path focused on communication.
I have spent a good part of my life exploring ways to see, hidden in the beauty of our everyday surroundings.
Academically, I come from a background of fine arts – printmaking (intaglio/serigraphy), painting (abstract colourist) and conceptual art theory (Deleuze). I have also studied the foundations of graphic design, collaborated with collectives who’ve launched creative campaigns and was the chief art director for a creative business partnership called Bubbles + Blocks.
I am truly inspired that I have had the opportunity to guide and lead peers, friends and communities through creative and thoughtful awakenings – small and large.
I now reside in beautiful British Columbia, where I share my passion for art in every form with my brilliant husband Romel. Together, we brought a curious little girl into our world on December 13, 2016. Her name is Bishop Roux Anaïs (after Anaïs Nin) and she is simply, the best!
I hope you can find some simple or complex enjoyment in my blog and I welcome any inquiries to collaborate artistically or professionally.
For any additional questions or if you would like to chat more in person, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Take care and remember, we stay on top!
