I'm Angela Taguiang, an illustrator and graphic designer in Manila, Philippines. I love telling stories through pictures. I love exploring themes of discovery, self-expression, nature, memories, contemplation, and dreams in my work, celebrating the quiet moments and finding bits of magic in everyday life. I work well with digital tools, but I still find pencils and papers incomparable. I think they allow me to be both delicate and soft, bold and expressive.
In 2021, my work for Ang Batang Papet (The Child Puppet) was selected for the 9th annual Sharjah Exhibition for Children's Books Illustrations. In the same year, I received an Honorable Mention from the Philippine Board on Books for Young People - Alcala Prize based on the story Ang Tahanang Hindi Tumatahan.
I'm a very proud and active member of Ang Ilustrador ng Kabataan (Ang INK), the Philippines' first and only organization dedicated to the creation, promotion, and appreciation of illustration for children.
