Pinay Artist is your one-stop shop for custom and traditional arts and events. It offers a collaborative space for cultural exchange through art, writing, workshops, and events. It also has a charitable mission of promoting indigenous cultures across the globe and supporting local communities in the Philippines.

 

Meg Daupan launched this small business in April 2022 as her creative outlet and a way to connect with her local community as well as her home country, the Philippines. She was born and raised in the Philippines, and of Igorot-Tagalog-Chinese descent. She moved to the US in 2014 for a second master's degree, in natural resources & environment, later becoming the first Filipino to earn this degree from the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability.

 

Meg's inspiration for starting this business stems from her childhood passion for the arts, her experience with community organizing around environmental and social justice issues, and her interest in indigenizing teaching and learning.
