Adobo SheCreative: Artist Raxenne Maniquiz claims the creative space as her own

MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Leave it to artists to derive the point that a woman’s perspective matters. Through their hard work and skills, more and more women are claiming spaces and their right to creatively and permanently exist in them.

Enter Raxenne Maniquiz, an artist and woman who is in a league entirely of her own. As a graphic designer and illustrator, she is known for featuring endemic flora and fauna.
