Jennifer Gomez Tandoc
I AM AN ARTIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER. I WAS BORN IN 1978 IN MANILA, PHILIPPINES AND MOVED TO LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA IN 1980 AFTER GRADUATING FROM HIGH SCHOOL AT CALIFORNIA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF, RIVERSIDE. I WENT STRAIGHT TO NATIONAL TECHNICAL INSTITUTE FOR THE DEAF AT ROCHESTER, NEW YORK. IN MAY 2002, I GOT MY ASSOCIATE DEGREE IN ART AND COMPUTER DESIGN. I HAVE MOVED TO LIVE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS. I LOVE AUSTIN, IT IS A GREAT PLACE FOR ARTISTS - AS THERE ARE PLENTY OF GALLERIES ALL OVER TOWN. I FEEL LIKE I FIT IN HERE! I HAVE BEEN PASSIONATE ABOUT ART SINCE I WAS A LITTLE GIRL. OVER THE YEARS, MY ART WORK HAS DRAWN A LOT OF POSITIVE ATTENTION. ONE OF MY DREAMS IS TO BECOME FAMOUS AND SUCCESSFUL AS DEAF ARTIST!
Ms. Tandoc also was one of our ten artists that were featured at 2016 Arts Beats and Eats.
