It's like bingo,
but with a 'j'

I’m a commercial illustrator, art educator, 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.

When I’m not making art, you’ll normally find me running along Indy’s Cultural Trail, sketching and enjoying a beverage at a local coffee shop (my current favorites: Tinker Coffee at The Amp, Calvin Fletcher's Coffee Company, and Provider), or cheering on my beloved Pacers and Colts!
