Hello there! My name is Liliana Ugarriza & I'm a Stop Motion Artist. I am from Colombia, I'm sure you’ve tasted our coffee grounds, purely delicious!
I don't want to bore you with too much information, so I'll get straight to it.
WHY ANIMATION? Not all of us are good at expressing our feelings or thoughts through words. Hence, I use my love and passion for animation to express my creativity & thoughts. I’m driven to reflect on diverse stories that can be visually appealing and culturally rich, regardless of the medium used.
Tapping a creative approach with my knowledge of film studies, I remain creating motion graphics and designing for corporate identity and branding. I have also developed skills in Advertising, Marketing, Customer service and social network management.
Although I spend a lot of time creating art pieces, I also use my real-life struggles and experience to help students find a purpose through life coaching. Overcoming the stereotype of introvert artist has been a personal goal that entrepreneurship and life coaching helped me, and helping others to achieve it has become a passion of mine.
