MEET OUR ARTISTS
Chibia Ulinwa is a violinist, singer/songwriter, educator, and lettering artist based in Portland, OR. With a passion for bursts of color and uplifting others, Chibia creates energetic & vibrant, positive pieces to educate and amplify others! Lettering started off as a fun way to destress for Chibia and now has brought her many opportunities to design book dust jackets, notebook covers, sticker sheets, and so much more. You can follow along on her lettering journey on Instagram.
How did you start making art that empowers people?
I think that art is one of the greatest forms of self expression and it has always been somewhat of a refuge for me whenever I feel down. The really cool thing about lettering is that you are constantly sharing a message and the messages I choose to share are the little reminders that I make for myself to get me through the day. Thankfully, those messages also resonate with others and so I continue to make art that reflects getting through life!
What do you do to self-care?
I like to practice mindfulness, drink tea/have a Japanese tea ceremony, go on walks or work out, and just take some time to relax. As someone that is constantly working, I like to do activities that allow me to just rest and have fun whenever I have the chance.
