He was one of the printmakers who did the illustrations for the children’s book "The Golden Arrow of Mt. Makilkilang and other Cordillera Folktales”. His latest exhibit, “I’m Doing My Father’s Business” showcased works done in collaboration with his son, where drawings of the latter were used as inspiration and as images for his plates.

She did two terms at Central St. Martins, University of the Arts London where she learned letterpress, bookbinding, and various printmaking techniques.
