ARTIST

“I’m on a mission to tell stories, promote diversity and equality through the visual arts by portraying a wide variety of people and spaces of different backgrounds. I have an expressionistic style that focuses on portrait and abstract painting and drawing.”

I am an Anglo-Filipina Artist based in London, United Kingdom.
I’m on a mission to tell stories, promote diversity and equality through the visual arts by portraying a wide variety of people and spaces of different backgrounds. I have an expressionistic style that focuses on portrait and abstract painting and drawing.
I have a background in fine art, fashion design, photography and communications and use those skills as an educator at the Royal College of Art. I feel at home drawing, painting and recording life around me and in 2020 I featured as a contestant in Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year.
During my fashion years, I drew on my heritage as inspiration and have written academic papers about the beauty of the negative space and architecture we occupy in our daily lives. My practice continues to explore painting portraits, figures, nudes, dance forms, cultural diversity, heritage, landscapes, cityscapes, living culture and creating movement works with my Fashion Project.
As a Londoner, I feel privileged to be in a position where I work with global citizens and creatives from a wide breadth of backgrounds and cultures on a daily basis. Above all I am passionate about diversity, inclusivity, equality, conservation and sustainability and seek out individuals and organisations who share these passions to work with.

RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME

HOMEMy family is from the United Kingdom and the Philippines. Midlanders in England who came to London during the industrial revolution in the 19th century for work and Kapampangans in the Philippines that have explored the globe in search of work and economic improvement in the 20th and 21st centuries.
GLOBAL CITIZENWhile I am of English and Filipino descent, I feel passionately that I am also a European and Global Citizen. I am on a mission to positively promote the people and culture of the Philippines and other underrepresented people of the South East Asia region and the world.
CONSERVATIONI raise money for habitat and wildlife conservation, a subject I feel very strongly about because I believe that without a healthy home, we all suffer.
TRAVEL – My husband and I both share a passion for travel and discovery. Exploring and educating ourselves about the life, food and art of the worlds cultures when the time and budget allows.
EDIBLESWe also grow our own edible plants on our London allotment. We have fruit trees, herbs, vegetables, edible flowers and everything in between. In our urban home, it gets us outside more, in nature, creative in the kitchen and it has helped teach us to treasure the Earth further and to learn about soil regeneration, the imporatnce of polinators and more.
COCKTAILSI have a penchant for a luxury cocktail bar and a strong classic cocktail to match. I took my love for cocktails to another level when I trained in international cocktail bartending. I am now a rusty, but qualified bartender.
ATHLETEI start my days with movement, doing everything I can to cultivate the love I have of strength training, practicing yoga, pilates, dance and long distance running.
TECHNICAL – I work with the Royal College of Art management team having led the communications and space planning strategy for Technical Services. Currently working closely with the School of Communication, I am helping to lead the development of audio visual, moving image and photographic resources, systems and team as a testbed and foundation for the new campus development in Battersea South.
ARTArt is my life long love. Yet I feel that I have only just begun my storytelling journey through the visual arts, with so much more work yet to do. I started with my own story, and it’s my life’s work to tell all of your stories too.
