Artist Statement

Having embellished certain details in rhinestones, I chose to highlight a few iconic cultural references drawn out from my own experiences as a first generation Filipino-American. Having never visited the country, I chose references in which drawn up images I feel closer to identifying my Filipino Heritage. These playful drawings are collaged in a childlike style to embody some of the kitsch aesthetic and playfulness of the Filipino people.
