Bio: Lana Ballot majored in Studio Arts at Stony Brook University, New York. After graduation she worked as a web designer, (like the previous artist, Roger Holmes) while studying painting further, making landscape her main subject. When she discovered pastels as a perfect plein air medium, she spent her free time painting outdoors. Although this early plein air work did not result in a lot of finished paintings, it proved to be an invaluable experience in developing the ability to see how colour, light and atmosphere affect each other in different times of day or season.
Lana lives on Long Island, NY where she has access to her favorite subjects - ocean, harbours, beaches etc. She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and a member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast. She teaches pastel painting in the Atelier in Flowerfield, St James, NY.
