Hi! My name is Yonita. I’m an illustrator based in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa and I’m constantly trying to learn and grow. Digital illustration is my current weapon of choice but I also love ink and watercolour. I’ve been drawing since . . . Always. : )

My inspiration usually comes in the form of great stories, epic music, my spiritual experiences, and Mama Nature. Birds, books and the botanical world have an extra special place in my heart.

I’ve spent most of my life studying a range of topics including genetics, botany (particularly psychotropic plants), design and brand communication, writing, sound engineering and spirituality. I’m also a bookworm, food appreciator and cartomancy enthusiast. I’m really into paleobiology right now. I can’t help it. I’m curious by nature.

Even though I studied all these other things, creativity is my passion. I love to create illustrations infused with my love and authenticity and I love to explore styles.

If you’d like to collaborate or commission an artwork, please do get in contact.

Some of my art is available on RedBubble and as posters on Displate. I also have a blog, Expanding Sapience, where I explore many things and share my experiences.
