Lana Daubermann is an Australian artist who lives in Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs with her partner and two beloved Havanese pooches - Maggie and Oscar. Lana’s passion for art began at an early age where she’d set up her easel in the backyard and paint pictures of the garden.
In Lana’s previous work life, she worked for some of Australia’s largest advertising agencies as an Art Director, this work has influenced her artwork that is graphic and painterly. Lana has departed the corporate world to concentrate more on her artistic pursuits!
She primarily works in oils and tends to gravitate towards still life and landscapes. Her latest projects focus on her love of Australian native flowers and foliage, with current works available for purchase at her upcoming solo exhibition 31 August - 21 September 2019 at Ladder Art Space in Kew.
“In my current floral works, I aim to create a sense of life and energy within a still life format. I think my style sits somewhere between my love and learnings of traditional tonal impressionism, and the bold and dynamic approaches of two of my favourite Margarets – Preston and Olley.”
Born 1979, Harare, Zimbabwe. Grew up in Perth, WA, lives in Melbourne.
Lana is a member of the Victorian Artists Society.
