” Watercolor painting is a meditation that both calms and excites me. Every new painting is an exercise in letting go and remaining present. The results from putting brush to paper often surprise me! If you feel even a bit of this ‘greater aliveness’ from viewing one of my paintings I will have done my job.”
Knowing there is a divine nexus between people, place and circumstance, Lani makes sure to remain completely open to all styles and every kind of subject matter. In addition to paintings of real people, animals, still life, and images from her travels, Lani paints people set in imagined landscapes. This process employs photographs, her own and those from other sources, creatively composed to create original subject matter. These artworks are both spiritual and whimsical with a unique light-filled palette and intend that the viewer full in the narrative for themselves.
Lani earned a B.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University and B. A. in Art Education from North Carolina Central University. Maintaining a studio and art gallery in her home makes it easy for her to paint every day. Lani welcomes commissions.
Lani is on the Board of Directors of the Chatham Artists Guild where she is currently serving her third year as Co-President. She is also one of 32 member/owners of the, new to Pittsboro, Pittsboro Gallery of Arts located just off the circle near the courthouse.
