Lani is a nationally recognised Aboriginal Artist; her career started in 2014 when she designed a painting for the Cultural Season Art Competition and was announced as the winner. This painting was displayed and presented by MP Fiona Scott at the Ngarra Aboriginal Knowledge Centre.
Lani also entered into a competition for the St Vincent Hospital in Sydney which she was announced as the winner. This saw her design used for their uniforms, website and Aboriginal Health Unit within the hospital.
Over the next 2 years Lani continued to create amazing art for many people, companies and organisations. In 2015 the NSW Police Force commissioned a painting to be used for the NSW Police Legacy Ball which was auctioned off to raise money for police officers and their families. The painting was purchased by then Assistant Commissioner Catherine Burn.
In 2016 Lani was asked to paint a design for the St George Illawarra Dragon‚Äôs for their Indigenous round. This painting was used by the Dragons to design their Indigenous Jersey that was worn by all the players. The St George Illawarra Dragons were extremely happy with the design from Lani she continued to design artworks for their Indigenous rounds for the next 4 years - 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Lani‚Äôs continued success didn‚Äôt stop there, also in 2016 she was announced as the 2016 NAIDOC Poster Competition winner with her artwork ‚ÄúSonglines‚Äù. This poster was used as the 2016 NAIDOC theme across the country and was huge success in her career. During the 2016 NAIDOC week celebrations Lani was interviewed by local i98 FM in the Illawarra along with ABC News about her design and what it meant.
Lani has now been creating art for over 5 years now and has had continued success across the country. One of her biggest goals and inspirations with creating her artwork is to develop a better connection to her culture and to continue to work towards reconciliation; bringing people and communities together to learn about what amazing culture we have here in Australia.
