Liliana is an award-winning artist, illustrator and writer in residence at Paper Bird, a working studio in the historicWest End of Fremantle, next door to Moore Gallery. During her three years as an abstract artist Liliana has won multiple awards for her paintings, adding to the accolades her twelve literary titles have collected. Most recently Liliana’s painting ‘Still Life’ was Highly Commended in the 2015 South Perth Emerging Artist Exhibition. Liliana also won first prize in the Freedom School exhibition 2017 for her painting'When the rain came.'
Liliana describes her painting as, ‘a journey which explores in me the romance of the little cottage in the woods and the real world… Another kind of language, filling the space between dreams and waking.’ Liliana’s work often speaks to the natural world and the complex layers of human relation, and it hums with a revelled abandonment that the abstract medium allows. Liliana works in ink on paper and canvas, paint and wire.
