Meet the Artist



Drawing and Painting

“My artworks explore the interconnectedness between us and the earth, the cycle of life, and my dreams. I’ve always had a strong connection to nature, always wanting to be outside, curious about the animals and plant life around me; a source of inspiration for my artworks and poems. I trace stories back to my Philippine heritage, history, and sciences to create a better understanding of the world around me while creating storytelling elements in my paintings.”
