This body of work was inspired by memories from my childhood and youth in the Philippines, and my life as a Filipino-American immigrant living in New York City and the Hudson Valley.
Art making is my way of "excavating" parts of my identity that may have been buried or forgotten while I focused on raising my children. This creative journey has helped me to dig deeper and uncover some of the hidden treasures I draw upon from my Filipino culture--a sense of gratitude, resilience and optimism, and close family ties. Plus an appetite for exotic foods! I've also come to appreciate the qualities I now share with many of my American friends--independence, freedom of expression, philanthropy and a deep concern for our environment.The paintings in this gallery were part of my Fil-Am I am art show at the Philippine Center from July 17 through August 4, 2023.
