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 personal favorites: Rabble Coffee, Neidhammer, and Provider), or cheering on my beloved Pacers at Bankers Life Fieldhouse!

You can also visit my studio at The Harrison Center during our open studio nights, on select First Fridays of the month.
