My name is Rochelle, a photographer of people. I have been an active photographer since 2007 and I do this all over Sweden and sometimes within EU. My pictures are about capturing the connection between two people in love, our connection to nature and the beautiful architectural designs we mostly missed. I love to portray Atmospheric, lively and honest images. I am also a self-taught artist. Due to my Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, I use painting as one of my healing procedures to still my mind and thoughts. My art theraphy sessions are one of the strongest points that I share with every student that I meet. My paintings reflects my soul with hope, joy and the longing for greater challenges. Embossed with vibrant colors and healing, painting motifs of people, abstract and nature.
No matter what you want for the photo shoot, it’s important that you are safe with me. Your photo session is memorable and I can give you a safe and easy photo day during weddings, family photos or portrait bookings. You can share your Life story via Pictures and all memorable moments with loved ones.
If you need to relax and process yourself through art? Do you have trauma, stress or anxiety? Then art therapy is for you who want a processing strategy to work with yourself and control the mind through colors and stillness in art. Together we can create creative, meaningful moments in silence with a developing day for the mind and soul.
When it comes to art, my strong style is these colors, people and nature paintings. Acrylic, watercolor and sketch are my strong points in art. I have used both photography and art to be able to process myself through PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Before you Continue, I want to share you something about artists, designers, engravers, embroiderers and blacksmiths. Merely craftsmen
Read to what Exodus says about these men:
Then Moses said to the Israelites, “See, the Lord has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills…– I believe it is a gift to be wise and understood.
Now let me pause here and wonder if a person doesn’t know the rest of the chapter, what kind of call would you think Bezalel had on his life? I mean, he is filled with the Spirit and wisdom and understanding. Is he a priest? A Levite? A prophet?
None of the above. Here is what he and his chosen assistant Oholiab were filled with the Spirit and with wisdom to do…
—to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut and set stones, to work in wood and to engage in all kinds of artistic crafts. And he has given both him and Oholiav son of Ahisamak, of the tribe of Dano, the ability to teach others. He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers—all of them skilled workers and designers.“
They were filled with the Spirit and wisdom to work with their hands! Believers need to understand and teach the biblical significance of men and women who do blue collar jobs (and any non-pastoring jobs). In the Torah or Books of Moses, Bezalel and Oholiav were spiritually qualified by God to the highest level, using phrases we’d use for the most significant spiritual offices. And since the New Testament teaches the priesthood of all believers, I’d say all believers accountants, janitors, teachers, and electricians are today as well.
We need to teach art as the way of God’s masterpiece through us!
Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. Proverbs 16:24
Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin. -Psalm 19:14
Now, Here’s my story.
I am just a simple woman who loves my Family, my children and God. My hobby is reading books, playing guitar, writing songs, blogging, vlogging, painting and etc. etc…..
I am a mother of two Children, they are actually teen now. I was born in 1986. Born from the Mountains of Baguio City Philippines and grew up in the streets of Malcom Square park. We were one of the vendors. I grew up in a very poor family, I am the eldest of four. I have experienced child abuse, and at my teenage years I was sexually abused by relatives and have been from a raped in 2003.
As a child, I have interest in many things such as Music, Art and Images. I am actually very bad in my academics. So I am way way too dumb for those subjects like math. I grew up in a less fortunate family and our daily needs is met by selling duck eggs and serving sandwhich and coffee in the streets. If you have visited Baguio City in the 90s you would have known how it looked there. In my childhood days, I was mostly busy cutting papers in school, my favourite subject was english, science (except the terms about chemistry and microbiology). I cut paper dolls and draw them, I sketched alot and used alot of graphite or sometimes charcoal. They are cool I promise.
My childhood memories weren’t easy. I grew up with such responsibility to look after my siblings and since my environment is less fortunate,
I have to help the family make it through the day. I can say I grew up in a dysfunctional family yet my parents did their best to raise us with good manners and right conduct. I am very tactical at my age when I was 8. I could find many ways to earn money and I have so many ideas to produce things to earn. So, we got through and survived and these became my strongest skills as I grew up. And I love the skills we gain through poverty and sufferings. It taught me well to being grateful in less and more or vice versa.
At school as a child, I have been bullied and wasn’t liked. Probably because I already think differently. I speak as I wanted to and it was difficult to express myself towards other children. So sometimes, I end up in fights and it is also the same at home. I didnt experienced being a child due to the huge responsibility I was forced to face and handle.
My interest in music was great. I am influenced by the hiphop, RnB, Ballad and even the 80s songs. I remember I used to sing Eminems Cleaning out my closet or Ushers song. So I sing sometimes. So its a blended interests. When I was 10 years old, I have always dreamt of having my own camera and I have never had one lol.
As my years turns into teenage years, I have suffered small symptoms of depression due to abuse and molestation. So by cutting papers and sketching, I tried to keep myself busy. So I won’t remember any of it at all. The situation has never been talked about and as a child, I wasn’t interested in making friends with other teens too. I thought it was unnecessary and I was afraid to get hurt.
I kept sketching everyday, or sometimes walking up the mountains and just enjoy quiet environment
and being alone. In my lowest moments I am awake late at nights waiting for the sky
to show its stars and lights up the moon. I’m usually awake at 2am to watch the moon and the stars.
I dream that One day, I will be able to do my dream…
To express myself in beautiful pictures.
When and how? I don’t have any idea how I will get there.
In 2007, I came to Sweden. The new life begins. A dream is to be born. I lived in Jönköping County about two hours drive from Gothenburg. The place was quiet and it was culture shock for me. But these new place gave me a chance to know myself better far from my family. I’ve learned Independence and Courage.
So as time goes by and I got married and got children, my interests never died out. They were still here inside of me waiting to be explored. Although my marriage was very dysfunctional and abusive, I still dreamed a dream I always had. I painted some stuff from time to time using acrylics and I wasn’t yet focused at those times. I was more interested in Sketching portraits, drawing small and big stuff, trying myself out. And in those years of 2007, I started freelancing as a photographer, just a hobby. It went well, I had some private clients then. I even created a youtube channel that I never knew what to do about.
In 2012, I have learned to play the guitar. I swear the people around me almost died in listening to my tunes. But thats the process of learning, someone have to try and somebody else have to suffer hahaha!
In 2013, I started painting in secret. So I studied Arts from time to time and read from the advices of the ones who are already professional. In 2016 I started to take my painting, photography seriously. It gave birth in 2018. When I started to paint, I realised I have grown so much. And I was open to changes and new learning that comes my way. I have learned to face my fears. My youtube channel that was non-sense content started to become my Art channel and grew. In 2019, I presented my first exhibit about my painting through Swedish Cultural Newspaper. It had been seen across Scandinavian countries. And Since that day, I have learned many things. My perspective changed. Same year of 2019, I joined Artists Network and started my Art teaching career Online. From there, I have been teaching art personally to clients and also taking photos of people, places and items.
So I believe that dreams can become true if you digest yourself into it and learn the process of waiting. And while you wait for the right time, Jump into the oppurtunities of learning. Learn as much as possible and take the oppurtunities that comes your way. Accept the critcs and make them as tools to development. I know that you as well can make it.
I hope you enjoy them Be blessed
Love and Care
Now I continued living life as a student of Torah, writing, singing, painting and speaking in small gatherings for encouragement and upliftment.
THIS IS HOW GOD TRANSFORMED MY LIFE
