Born 1969, Yana Meech is one of New Zealand’s up and coming contemporary painters.
As a self-taught artist she realised at an early age that by projecting her emotions to the canvas she could achieve a better life balance. Yana paints with acrylic on canvas, experimenting with many different styles from contemporary landscape to abstract.
Working out of a purpose built art studio at her country home makes the perfect location for her artistic work. Her work sells throughout New Zealand and overseas including UK, Scotland, Australia and the United States.
Yana has exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand from Orewa in the North to Christchurch in the South. Placed second in the acrylics section at the 2011 Franklin Arts Festival and Merit Award at 2014 Easter Show Art Exhibition.
