I am a Philippine-born Sydney based emerging artist working in contemporary drawing and portraiture. My works pursue the ideals of classical realism within the language of post-conceptual and post-photographic aesthetics. In 2017 whilst still completing my Honours year in Fine Arts, I was awarded the first prize for the South Australian Portrait Biennale, Commended prize for the Lloyd Rees Youth Award, and both the Local Artist and People's Choice awards for the Blacktown Art Prize. I have also previously won the prestigious Black Swan Prize for Portraiture. I have participated in multiple group shows in Australia including exhibitions in the Blacktown Arts Centre, Campbelltown Arts Centre and Muswellbrook Regional Art Gallery. I am currently preparing for upcoming solo exhibitions at Crowther Contemporary in Melbourne and Tong Lau Space in Hong Kong. My works are included in the Blacktown City Art Collection, as well as in private collections in Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and Manila.
