I am an artist working with ceramics, painting with multimedia, and inspired by ancient Filipino culture. I produced workshops teaching the fundamentals of the Baybayin Script at a variety of venues. My efforts were picked up by CBS-5, Sharron Chin. A workshop on Ancient Tattoo and Baybayin Script was filmed by The Filipino Channel’s Balitang America ABS-CBN: Interview with Henni Espinosa aired internationally. Key pieces of my work are being published online and in print in the Tayo Literary Magazine Oct 2010 issue. Future endeavors include an appearance in a documentary film on Baybayin Script; release is to be announced in 2011. January 2011 I will be launching my first Art Show at Linen Life Art Gallery located at 770 E. 14th Street, San Leandro featuring Filipino Inspired art and other new works.
