Hello! I am Yolanda Olavarrieta, a handlettering artist and watercolor enthusiast from Bloomington, Indiana USA.
In retrospect, I have always found comfort in exploring my creativity, but it was not until a few years ago after coming across a calligraphy account on Instagram that I decided to finally embrace my creative side and give handlettering a try. After a couple years of practicing, learning from a lot of great artists, and trying to incorporate their knowledge to my own art, I began developing my own style. Through this I learned that I have an eye for color and aesthetics, I love blending colors, and I have an obsession with pens and markers. I especially love the ones in this box that we are trying out! These markers are beautifully pigmented and are so fun to work with.
