Yolanda Warnich was born in Saldanha Bay, on the Cape West Coast, where she developed her lifelong passion for the sea and rugged landscapes. Warnich initially studied and worked in the world of fashion design, and spent time traveling and living abroad.

Warnich received her Bachelor in Visual Arts through UNISA in 2015.  

She is a painter at heart, but also a dedicated printmaker, and until recently, created new works on paper by integrating the two. Her work also involves papermaking, and reflects her concerns around land and ecology.
