Susan Martinez Hernaez is a talented seamstress from the Philippines, and she lives and works in Singapore. She created Floorplans as a way of coping with the tragic loss of her brother Carlito Jr. (Jong) in December 2015. They are the adjoining floorplans of her house and her brother's which he built for his family. Jong was a carpenter, and it is one of many houses he designed and built in her town of San Esteban along the coastline of Ilocos Sur.
