“My images evoke who you really are, the voice of your story, the different shades of your dreams, the truth of your everyday life.”
My images evoke who you really are, the voice of your story, the different shades of your dreams, the truth of your everyday life. The lens captures the voices of those who share their own experiences with me. The raw, the grainy, the gritty. The movement, the angle, the music. I invite you to experience this beautiful journey, to see your reflection in my visions, to embody the fullness and richness of our lives, as I share my experience with you.
A proud Oakland resident, I was born in the Philippines and grew up in Milpitas, California, daughter and granddaughter of Pilipino immigrants. I am a queer-identified Pilipina who pushes social and political boundaries to convey images through portraits, fine art, and documentary projects.
My images have been featured in daily newspapers such Asian News and The Roundup-News, The Daily Californian, KQED, San Francisco Chronicle (print and digital) and the web outlet mattblack.com. Additional media coverage has included Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month as well as Makeshift Magazine. Finally, my work has been exhibited throughout the Bay Area at venues such as Betti Ono Gallery, SomArts Gallery, and as part of curated multimedia events such as Outside the Frame Film Festival, and Kearny Street Workshop’s 2015 APAture Festival.
