I am a self-taught abstract artist.
I was a medical professional who did a bit of art as a hobby for relaxation mainly in coloured pencils. COVID hit and hard lockdown ensued, I needed something to help me to deal with the physical and emotional trauma that I was dealing with on a daily basis, that’s when I started painting and found my passion.
Every painting I create has a little piece of my soul in it.

I’m Yolk, a cartoonist/illustrator
I focused on drawing cartoons, which I always enjoyed drawing but was too shy to express it as I got older, but now I am out of my shell and pouring out what was kept inside, pushing to get better and finding many ways to express it.
My pronouns are sw/ag
Essentially a sketch artist exploring the world of acrylics. She has a curious nature for nonsensical beauty inspiring her to create visual depth using shapes that intersect, overlap and pile up, offering a moment or pause in her abstract work.
