Liana started her creative career as a Flamenco dancer and performed in many of the worlds most illustrious Theatres throughout Europe, the United States and Central America.  After nearly 10 years abroad travelling and dancing she returned home to Australia and felt a great need to expand her creativity into the visual arts. Until this time her love of drawing and painting had taken a second place in her life.  Four years intensive art training followed through a full-time degree in Visual Arts Degree (BVA) at the Adelaide Central School of Art. Not long after receiving her Bachelor of Visual Arts degree Liana was awarded a Winter Artists Residency at the Scuola Internazionale de Grafica in Venice. 

As well being an active exhibiting artist, Liana has dedicated herself to helping others achieve their artistic goals through her workshops and classes for Adults, Teens and Children.
