Yana Meech

Yana Meech lives in rural Katikati with her family and myriad of animals, a self-taught artist preferring to work with acrylic 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 the atmospheric, moody paintings inspired by the views from her Katikati rural home.

Yana’s works sell throughout New Zealand and overseas including Scotland, Australia, the United Kingdom 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 the Ellerslie Art Exhibition, received Merit at the 2014 Auckland Easter Show and second in the acrylics section at the 2011 Franklin Arts Festival.

Yana will have works in one of the eight houses on the Tour.
