Hello, my name is Nica.
I'm from Manila;
Now working and playing in the SF Bay Area.
I write and illustrate short stories.
I print literary zines,
make greeting cards,
Mother to the Little Bitch Pillow.



// The Long Version.

Hello my name is Nica and I'm the writer and illustrator of Kwento.  Kwento means "story" in Tagalog, my first language. Kwento is a creative space where I write, draw, and tell stories. In fact, Kwento was born as a zine in 2015 and since then it's become home to prints, cards, notebooks, and little embroidered pillows made by me.

People say the stories I write are funny, thoughtful, and make them cry.

Nice to meet you.
