Born in 1965 - Colombia
Yolanda Velasquez is a Colombian born artist, whose figurative& contemporary work reflects scenes from her travels and adventures around the world, capturing the natural magic and beauty of each country and the women that nurture it. Initiated in fine arts at renowned Colombian artist David Manzur’s academy, Yolanda followed her training with studies in industrial design, drawing, and coloring techniques.
She mixes the texture, richness, and strength of acrylic and oil in her paintings to capture the beauty and motion of real life scenes. Originally inspired by the pride of her Colombian culture, her style has evolved as a result of immersions throughout Asia. Inspired by the natural beauty in her current home of Australia, Yolanda’s style is transitioning from realism to an abstract exploration of the richness of impressionism. Her bold paintings are housed in private collections around the world.
