About the Artist
Yani works at home in her studio, from the photographs to sketch book as starting points for a way of painting. Her current artworks mainly use acrylic, ink, watercolour and mixed media. The colours, textures and shapes conjure up different moods and the play of light and shadows suggest a bold and bright style.
Yani was born and raised in Indonesia. She moved to the UK in 2005, first to Swansea, South Wales, and then, in 2013, to Scotland.
Yani began learning to draw and paint at a very young age. Moving to the UK has given her more time to explore her art and develop her distinctive style.
Over the past few years, her artwork has moved from realistic to impressionist. Yani's artworks mainly use acrylic, ink, watercolour, and mixed media. Her powerful, confident artworks use strong and vibrant colours, and dynamic composition.
Photographs and sketches are used as starting points for a way of painting which is exploratory and intuitive, the painting develops throughout the process.

The colours, textures and shapes conjure up different moods and the play of light and shadows suggest a bold and bright style for dramatic results.
