Guahu si Gillian Dueñas and I tell my stories through visual art. By painting, weaving, carving, and jewelry making, I explore my identity as a mixed-race Indigenous Pacific Islander woman born and raised in the diaspora. My art is an act of reclamation, decolonization, and healing. I take inspiration from traditional motifs, legends, and jewelry and reimagine them in a modern context. Overall, I use my art to amplify my stories as well as the stories of my community.
