Maker Monday: Carolynn Yoe

Happy Maker Monday! 

This week we are featuring Carolynn Yoe and her fabulous illustrations! Carolynn’s illustration style is so fun, which makes her Etsy store just as fun to look through! Each of her pieces have such character and need I mention the colors! The color palate of her work gives us all the heart eye emojis! Carolynn has a passion for illustrating and implementing it into creations she can share with others. You can find everything from stickers, custom portraits, magnets, coasters, cards and more in her shop! She has many exciting things (including a children’s book!) in the works and she continually pursues her craft, which is one of the reasons she’s definitely an illustrator to watch. To enjoy more of Carolynn’s work and to learn more about her journey, read on!

: Tell us a little about yourself.

: My name is Carolynn and I’m an illustrator. I was born and raised in a small and sunny town in Indonesia, but now I live in Singapore. My daily routine includes blogging and working from my home studio where ideas are scribbled and created into existence. I’m also a dog-person and I’m into snail mail. I have collected postcards for years and most of them are dogs and illustrations.

: You sell your illustrations and designs in the form of stickers, magnets, coasters, cards, colouring pages and more! How did you start your Etsy shop?

: My shop started shortly after I was graduated from University. At that time, I like to draw house portraits and I’d post them on my Tumblr (carolynnyoe.tumblr.com). I received quite a few compliments and people started to ask me if I could help them draw their houses. So then I thought, hey, why not create a shop to make it easier for them to find me. Once I started my Etsy shop, I just kept finding more inspiration to draw and sell.
