Rhodelyn Come
Rhodelyn Come is 12 years old. The daughter of Hordeliz G. Come and Henty Come, she is of Ivatan descent on both sides. She has been painting since she was 5 years old, making it her passion – her room is devoid of the usual teenage paraphernalia, instead resembling a working artist’s studio, with a bed cluttered with paints and easels all around. In the 6th grade she joined the Pacita Abad painting contest and won 3rd prize in the elementary division. She was also valedictorian of the Elementary class of the 1st Payuhuan nu Kapaypinta, the 1st indigenous arts training program in Basco, Batanes and an assistant trainer for other youth in the remote islands of Itbayat and Sabtang.

She was given the accolade Mistress of the Mural and Goddess of the Clouds for her contributions to the 10-foot by 6-foot mural that will be exhibited in the Museo Pambata in November. Her desire is to paint Ivatan culture to show how Ivatans can maintain their culture and way of life, even in the modern age.

She prefers acrylic paint, and although she is still young, she is adept in charcoal, crayon, pastels, poster color and watercolor. Rhodelyn paints designs and abstract but above all she loves realism so that she can paint just what she knows about being Ivatan, using stories from her grandmother to inspire her.

Rhodelyn’s goal is to travel to all the places in Batanes to find Ivatan fossils, artifacts of culture to paint, in order to show other people how beautiful Batanes is.
