Yana lives in rural Katikati, with her family and myriad of animals, a self taught artist preferring to work with acrylic and inks as a medium on framed canvas. Her style ranges from contemporary landscape to abstract, experimenting in her home art studio with the old and the new. Yana loves to paint atmospheric, moody paintings inspired by the views from her Katikati rural home.
Yana’s works sell throughout New Zealand and overseas including UK, Scotland, Australia and the United States. Yana has exhibited extensively, from the Hibiscus Art Show in Orewa to the New Zealand Art Show in Dunedin. She placed First for Best Overall Work in June 2016 at Ellerslie Art Exhibition, received Merit at Auckland Easter Show 2014 and second in the acrylics section at the 2011 Franklin Arts Festival.
Yana Meech works at Gallery Te Puna include original acrylic on canvas paintings.
