Yani Lenehan

Yani Lenehan is an artist living in Bathurst, and has a passion for colour. Her inspiration comes from anything and everything, but particularly from ordinary things she sees every day. Lately, she has been mainly focusing her practice on still life settings which are colourful and joyful.

When she paints her subjects, she likes to focus on how light affects it, showing their form through a gradation of tones. Her style is bright, fresh and warm and her process is delicate and calm.

She works mainly in oils, starting from a detailed drawing that is slowly built up to a stylised contemporary finished piece.
