Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Yolanda. I have been an artist for the majority of my life. I received my bachelors degree in Graphic Design and Media Arts. Earning this degree has helped me to expand my artistic-creative side into a digital medium.  My adventure with art and design seeks to be professional, communicate, and ethical. 

I have spent most of my life viewing, tasting, and experiencing the world around me. As a child, I unknowingly filled my thoughts with beauty, pattern, and passion for art. As an adult, my experiences in life have developed in me an intense need for story telling, commingled with a newness of technical education from 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 slide show, with actual photographic slides and carousel. Before all of this began, my first love for art and design began with owning and caring for an Appaloosa named April and browsing through magazines, in particular, Western Horseman and Sixteen Magazine.
