Hello! My name is Lina and I am an artist, designer and illustrator born in Colombia.

I studied Visual Arts at the National University of Colombia and from there I graduated with Honors. I've also made Studies in Graphic Design and Journalism. Currently I'm based in Hamburg, where I study a MA in Illustration and Graphic Novel, founded by a scholarship from the DAAD, with wich I was awarded in 2015.

I love Storytelling. Not very convinced about global stories, I think that what really defines us and constructs our identities, ways of thinking and at last our common History, is our very own stories and how we face, feel and assimilate our world, surroundings and own facts. And drawing is my way of telling this stories! I strongly believe that the role of art is transmitting what words cannot.

I work as a Freelance illustrator for firms like Penguin Random House, Ministry of Culture of Colombia and some important universities of my city, Medellín, like Universidad de Antioquia and Eafit University.

I am a nature and animal lover, world traveler, storyteller and hearer, comic lover and maker, so if you like my work, have a project and would like to involve my art and ideas, or just want to hang around Hamburg and take a cup of good Coffee ever once... Do not hesitate to contact me! Read Less
