Salima Saway is an artist who is very well known for her soil paintings. She is based in Mindanao, and she is a part of the Talaandig tribe in Lantapan, Bukidnon. 

During my trip with the Department of Tourism Region X along with my fellow media and influencer friends, we went to her house in Bukidnon, which serves as a mini-gallery that showcases her soil paintings.

Aside from using soil as painting medium, her work often talks about Talaandig's culture and tradition.
