Profile: Lana Ballot
The beaches near her Long Island studio provide infinite inspiration to pastel artist Lana Ballot. She captures the subtle colors of the grasses and the translucency of the water in her luminous land and seascapes. Ballot was born in Russia. It was after she moved to the United States that she began to study painting in-depth and eventually to become a full-time artist. She wrote to us about her background in Russia and about what inspires her when picking her landscape subjects.
