Art / Journalism / Research
I was born in the Philippines to a Dutch mother and Filipino father and grew up in both countries. I am a journalist and artist currently based in Cebu, Philippines. My current, multimedia, project about mining spans Brazil, Kingdom of Tonga, and the Philippines where I conducted field work between 2018 and 2019. I have worked for news organisations and also created art projects that exhibited at art galleries internationally. My work blurs the line between journalism and art, exploring issues related to power, social marginalization, and ecological impact that emerge from the exploitation of natural and social resources.
