COMMERCIAL. CLASSROOM. COMMUNITY.
These are the three values that define my artistry.
I’m a commercial illustrator, teaching artist, and reluctant cat lover. I was born and raised in the beautiful islands of the Philippines and now call the lovely city of Indianapolis, IN my home. Like many of my peers, I’ve been drawing since I was knee-high and haven’t stopped since. I’ve been illustrating professionally since 2011, having been an in-house artist for a major publishing company for over 2 years. In 2013, I decided to broaden my horizons and go the freelance route! I also host DRAWN, a bimonthly sketch night & live performance event on the near east side of Indianapolis.
When I’m not creating art, you’ll normally find me running along Indy’s Cultural Trail, enjoying a book and beverage at Calvin Fletcher’s or Rabble Coffee, or cheering on my beloved Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse!
