Jeanne Jalandoni

Jeanne F. Jalandoni lives and works in Uptown Manhattan. She works primarily with oil paint and textile. Her work explores defining Filipino-American identity through her experiences growing up as a 2nd generation American. Jalandoni’s ongoing research regarding her cultural histories deepens her understanding on how Filipinos/Filipino-Americans are perceived both socially and historically, and works to challenge these perceptions with the aid of her experiences and family stories.
