Hello and welcome to my blog!

I am Lorra Elena Angbue-Te, and this is where I share my passion for art, faith, and life.

As a visual storyteller, I create art that comes from or tells a narrative. Stories are important to me because the stories we tell live on, long after we’re gone, whether they’re in pictures, words, or both.

I started using watercolor when I was doing some DIY projects for my wedding in 2013, and realized that I really enjoyed creating with it.

In 2014, I decided to join a few workshops to learn more about the medium and it’s become my main medium ever since!

I set out to mainly be an illustrator but I accidentally ended up making a lot of lettering pieces too, featuring the quotes that I find uplifting. Through both my lettering and illustration work, I aim to connect with others (YOU!) and to spread a bit of sunshine wherever and whenever I can.

Recently, I’ve finished illustrating a book called The ABCs of Jesus’ Resurrection under Hiyas / OMF Literature and helped design the 2016 Scribble Planner by Filed.

Apart from this, I also co-create a weekly webcomic with my husband, Elbert Or, called Homeycomb: A Married Life that’s all about our life as husband and wife. We’re also giving birth to our first baby in a few months, so expect to see him in future episodes soon!

Lastly, I also co-founded Pushpin Visual Solutions, the only Manila-based studio that specialises in hand-drawn graphic recording and visual notes for impactful, engaging, and effective communication.
