Amelia Earhart

is an illustrator, animator, and hand poke tattoo artist

b. 1996, Irosin, Sorsogon, Philippines
Lives and works on the stolen, unceded Coast Salish Territory; the traditional territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.


Amelia applies a straight ahead approach to her work, beginning at a single point on a sheet of paper, she illustrates melting - both from heat and lack of stability. Amelia attempts to mend her conflicted identity as a half Filipina/x/o, her short animated films are way to approach trauma from a safe and retrospective distance.


Gentle lines and characters interact with each other, often resembling her family or herself; alleviating the pressures of having to  plan a piece from start to finish, freely expressing the waves of healing and pain through compromise and spontaneity.

As with illustration, animation, and writing, Amelia practices hand poke tattoo work in a similar light. The pain inflicted onto another is difficult to accept, though this approach to consensual pain is stable, cathartic; hand poke tattooing is tender and slow, still painful. 


Amelias’ work is not only a retrieval of pain, but an embracing of it.
