My name is Ilana Cowan. This is me posing very happily next to one of my favourite paintings in my home on the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
I was a passionate batik artist for over twenty years before switching to painting in 2014.
It is wonderful to have more time for art at this stage of my life. Painting has brought me a lot of happiness and satisfaction and has also connected me to many fellow artists across the world.
In 2019 I had my first exhibition, ‘New Beginnings’, at our local library in Maleny, Queensland, where my work was well received.
I am now in the process of creating a new body of work for a future exhibition in 2021.
