Designer Bio

 

 

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Yolanda. I am a soon-to-be college graduate. My degree in Graphic Design and Media Arts has helped me to expand my artistic-creative side into a digital medium. 

I playfully incorporate organic lines, colors and shapes found at the junction of beauty and purpose to craft an inspiring, compelling and authentic narrative of art. Mostly vegan, follower of Christ, re-claimer curb-side furniture, and gardener. I am fueled by do-it-yourself projects, avocados, and espresso crafted by my loving husband, watching My Hero Academia with my children, and making and eating vegan tamales. I prefer clear logic to decoration and sustainability.

When I begin a project, no matter what medium it is, it begins with an idea. The idea transfers to a form that encapsulates life and expression. I have spent most of my life viewing, tasting, and experiencing the world around me through my senses. As a child, I unknowingly filled my thoughts with beauty, pattern, and passion for art. Now that I am an adult, my experiences in life have developed in me, story telling commingled with a newness of technical education for graphic design, theory and application. I discovered William Morris and his great contribution that began the Arts and Crafts Movement. I fell in love with the style of Bauhaus and all that it stood for before closing their doors forever. I learned about color theory in a painting class, as Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cezanne, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir were eloquently exposed in an amazing PowerPoint. Before all of this began, my first love for art and design began with magazines, in particular, Western Horseman and Sixteen Magazine. 

I utilize my creative side to pursue a comprehensive palette of texture, movement, and space. My venture through art and design seeks to be professional, communicate, and ethical.
