Ines Blesilda "Bessie" Jacinto SVAA President
Inspired by new sceneries and experiences, Bessie's passion for world travel and photography grew, which in turn reawakened the desire to express herself in painting even as her prize-winning short stories got published in the '90's. Then by the end of 1999, her husband, Cesar Fabros, urged her to join the local art association (Simi Valley Art Association) and a national women's artistic group that had a local chapter (the National League of American PEN Women) . The ensuing fellowship with other artists and writers inspired her to focus on painting and within a year, she held her first solo art exhibit at Border's Bookstore - Canoga Park, California. Bessie went on to stage other solo art exhibits and participate in local and national juried shows, painting mostly landscapes in pastel, oil and watercolor media. She regularly attends art workshops, visits museums and travels extensively for creative growth.
Working full-time as an information technology professional, Bessie also supports local art groups in raising art awareness and appreciation in the community while building fellowship among artists of all levels.
