8 Inspiring Artworks by Artist Ella Lama

Brighten up your day with these inspiring hand-lettered quotes

Photography: Ella Lama

Every year, Real Living names 25 Creatives to Watch For in the fields of art, architecture, design, photography and more. For this year, one of the artists that we added to our list is letterer Ella Lama.

Ella explains that she discovered her love for lettering in 2012. She says that she couldn't sleep so she wrote down "Wake Up and Make Your Dreams Come True" in the fanciest way that she could. This inspired her to doodle more words and quotes using an old magic pencil and her sister's felt tip pens.

Here are some of her recent artworks using pencils, pens, watercolors, and other materials.

To see more of Ella's works, check out her Facebook page.

For those who need something to look forward to
For those who need a dose of optimism
For those who want to pursue their dreams
For those who are wary of the future
For those who want to change the world
