Mori (b. 1990) is a Zen doodle artist who was currently based in Valenzuela City. She was raised in a family where paints and brushes are seen everywhere in their home and it became a great impact on pursuing her art skills. Her artworks use an art style called Zendoodling which the art of drawing designs using structured patterns or "Zentangles." An art style in which she's not only creating a work of art, but also deliberately creating a mood, focus, and state of mind. Her zen doodling also includes a combination of mandalas and cultural ethnic patterns. Her usual subjects focus on mythology, legends, ethnicity, language, cultures, traditions, and nature. Mori makes sure that she pours her heart out through every painting she made and brings out what she has in mind. She uses "baybayin", a Philippine system of writing that existed before the Spanish Colonization. The favorite colors she uses are earthy and dark tones of acrylic paints which gives her paintings a strong presence.
