Yana at her most recent exhibition: Crouch End Open Studios 2019
'It is the moment before or just after something transformative has happened that interests me. I work initially from life, people, places, scenes I have witnessed. Sometimes the work remains a watercolour or a drawing. Often, I extend the subject into a big canvas in my North London studio. People seem to resonate with my work and my paintings are collected all over the world.'
Dr Anna Birch, artistic director of 'Fragments & Monuments.'
