Creator of Fine Design, was born and raised in Manila, Philippines. She credits her mother for her affinity for prose and her father, an architect for her lifelong passion for design and architecture. Together with her father, her brother and sister-in-law, all architects and interior designers, they own a successful full-service architectural and interior design firm based in Manila that specializes in modern residential design, as well as restaurant and hospitality and commercial contracts.
As a designer, one of the things she believes in is that successful interiors rely on how well it reflects those who inhabit them. Her goal is to blend this principle with sophistication, practicality and creativity to create designs that are enduring and timeless. They must not only be visually pleasing, but make life more enjoyable and easier. Her aim is to create spaces that integrate form and function in a style that finds beauty in the lines, textures and patterns of the most basic materials such as glass and wood. The design of a space could either be timeless or loudly speak about its time, but must always have an integral relationship with its inhabitants.
In the Philippines, she worked for MEGA Magazine, a lifestyle and fashion design magazine in Manila, as an editorial assistant. Here she designed a sourcebook page for home interior items.
She also worked as an intern at the firm of P. D. & A. (Planning Design and Application), in San Clemente, CA.
Her educational background includes degrees in Psychology and Interior Design.
Aura currently lives in Foothill Ranch with her wonderful husband, James and their two joyful children, Matthew and Eliza.
