Hello, I’m Lorena!

About me

As an eager and passionate UX/UI designer with a strong artistic background and vast graphic design experience. I love solving problems and bringing ideas to life while crafting unique user experiences. My passion for design started at a young age and has only grown throughout the years. I have developed my skills with education and years of experience, including extensive professional work in graphic design.


If you'd like to get in touch, please don't hesitate to email me.
I am an interface designer based in Richmond, VA. With a focus on user-centered design, I strive to create designs that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and easy to use.


Beyond my professional pursuits, I am very deeply committed to giving back to my community. One of my favorite hobbies is volunteering at a local dog shelter, where I have the opportunity to make a positive impact on animals in need. My goal is to create an impact on others and help as much as I can. I also like to foster dogs when possible and have helped dozens of dogs in the process. With a high homeless dog overpopulation in Florida, helping as much as I can became a goal in life.

a love for anime

Not just any anime but the ones with stunning visuals. I started watching anime since I was a kid and the love for it has not stopped. I always love watching a good story along with vibrant and well designed landscapes that will transport you to a different era or place. Below are some of my favorites anime and movies.

"I taught Lorena in UX/UI Design at Ironhack’s intensive bootcamp. She is extremely strong in both research and design, and pays meticulous attention to details. Unafraid to ask questions, she is driven by her curiosity and thirst to learn. She was able to keep up with the fast paced environment of the class and worked well with each person she was paired up with! I highly recommend Lorena!"
