Lana Daubermann is an Australian artist based near Merri Creek in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. She paints in her studio space at Sandbox Studios in Brunswick.
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 her 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 currently works part-time as a freelance graphic designer, with the ambition to work full-time in her art practice.
She primarily works in oils and tends to gravitate towards still life and landscapes. However, more recent works have been focussed on her exploration of ‘self’, 'place', 'space' and 'time'.
“I've been experimenting with new subjects and techniques in my studio over the past year or so. I'm looking forward to my next solo show...but totally unsure about what it's focus will be! There's been a lot of exploration going on, while I try to find my 'voice' and a connection to the world that feels right to me."
