Yvonne is an illustrator from San Juan, Puerto Rico with a background in graphic design and photography. Her work focuses on illustration, sequential art, and lettering. Inspired by the lowbrow art movement she uses various mediums such as ink, risograph, paint, screen printing or digital to explore themes like cannabis, feminism, psychedelia, sci-fi, mental health and anything society isn't comfortable talking about.  She uses her Polaroid or disposable camera to document the independent music scene from Puerto Rico in her zine called Weird Fold (@weirdfold) and rants with her friends in a feminist zine called Feminasty. 
Currently, she runs Espanto Press (@espantopress), a small press for indie comics, zines, and artbooks by Puerto Rican artists. As well as recently founding the cannabis education project colectivo cripi (@colectivocripi) on instagram
