Pursue Your Dreams
My name is Yana Ivannikova and I am an artist living and working in the Netherlands. My inspiration is always in front of my eyes. Most of my time I paint “en plein air”, standing on Etretat cliffs or in tulip fields, or struggling with wind on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. I am focused on painting sea- and mountainscapes to depict enormous power and energy of these. I am working in different techniques: watercolor, pastels, oils and mixed media. Now I am working a lot in mixed media techniques to combine fluency and freedom of the watercolor and controllable graphical peculiarities of the pastel technique.
My paintings found their new homes in private collections in the USA, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, the UK, Greece, France, Ukraine, Russia and so on.
I am dedicating most of my time to teaching at two my art studios "Schilder met mij" in Amsterdam and Eindhoven.
Since 2020 most the workshops and courses are available online.
