I was born in Manila, Philippines and migrated to Sydney in 1994. I studied Art at Meadowbank TAFE College in 1997 with an Advance Diploma in Fine Arts.

My only aim in mark making is to create an artwork with power attraction and not purely an aesthetic experience. I start by stripping down the image to its bear skeleton and reincarnate the soul into my world. I then reinvent its spatial composition and build multiple layers of impressions without dominating those beneath it. A subcultural hieroglyphic language filled a continuous space which inspired by ancient writings such as Egyptian hieroglyphs, Aztecs writings and Baybayin, a Pre Spanish Filipino alphabet.

A permutation of these symbols and patterns influences my whole creative thinking.
