As a multi-media artist, she lived and worked in Paris from 1992 until 2008 after completing a BFA in painting from the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts. Then she graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ENSBA) in Paris, winning the prize of its foundation in multi-media work in 1996.

She has organised exhibitions and contemporary art production projects for both local and foreign designers and visual artists.
