Meeting Margo on her windowsill today is Eulalia Mejia. Eulalia is an illustrator, graphic designer and mixed media artist living in the rural mountains of Colombia. Eulalia’s painterly illustrations are a well balanced mix between traditional and digital mediums, ranging from watercolors, gouache, acrylics and collage to Illustrator, Photoshop and Procreate. Having the ability to work in both worlds brings her a sense of freedom and joyous exploration that is tangible in her designs.
Margo and Eulalia discuss all things around:
Eulalia forging her own path to being a creative artist while being surrounded by a family of engineers.
Life and work in Colombia, South America
The pros and cons to working on your own
Working with an agent that keeps your best interests in mind
Giving yourself permission to create without boundaries (not everything has to be sellable when you’re an artist)
Where Eulalia finds inspiration
And so much more!
Eulalia’s artwork is often inspired by the exotic and magical tropical land she lives in, making it both alluring and enchanting. She believes that we are never too old to be amazed by everyday life and that surrounding ourselves with beauty is the best way to remember there can be magic in the world.
Most days you can find Eulalia in her studio creating. Her interests are diverse and encompass a wide variety of creative projects like: doll making, embroidery, book binding, mixed media painting, collaging and art journaling. When she is not creating she enjoys riding her bicycle through the mountains and watching horror movies while hiding under the cushions.
