I am a visual artist based in a tiny home studio in Northern Chicago and a radio dj for 107.1FM.
In papercutting, I draw and cut all my designs by hand using an x-acto knife (and a lot of blade replacements, lol). Some of my works are available for purchase online through Paperhugger Studio.
I also paint with watercolors and acrylics, and plan to marry all my mediums together (universe, tell me how). I illustrate with pencil and ink, and most of my past works (a regular comic strip and a substantial number of political cartoons, some of which have slightly gotten me into trouble in the past) have appeared in The Manila Collegian – the official student publication of UP Manila – my alma mater.
At the beginning of 2017, I also started handling the CHIRP online newsletter and it gave me so much joy discovering local events, organizations, and other proudly Chicagoan stuff to share with our music-lovin’ subscribers.
