India Dela Cruz is an artist whose works are mostly done on piña cloth, her way of promoting the centuries old piña weaving industry of Kalibo, her hometown.

The blending of the Oriental and Occidental art is reflected on her works, combining the subtle precise brushwork techniques of the East to match a beautifully balanced use of strong colors of the West.

Ms. Dela Cruz finished her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Pontifical University (University of Sto.Tomas) and studied Oriental painting under Prof. Chen Bing Sun of the Chinese Artists Guild. A FIDA awardee for her contribution in upgrading the abaca and piña weaving in Aklan, her experiments in producing fabrics from indigenous fibers, combined silk with other materials, have found acceptance in broader markets.
