Jessica L. Lupisan, a watercolor artist and true blue Sillimanian (ECS ’69, Elem ’75, HS ’79, BBA ’83), is inviting the Silliman and Dumaguete community to her exhibit, aptly titled, Jessica’s Artwork, this Saturday, December 2, 2017, 2pm at the Unicom Co-Work Space Hub, Room 106, Portal West Building, Silliman Avenue, Dumaguete City.

After being a bank executive for over 20 years in the country and abroad, she has settled back in Dumaguete to continue her passion in watercolor painting.
