Her first solo show was ‘Soholights’ at Cork Street Gallery in 2010 which recieved huge media interest. She has also exhibited at The Saatchi Gallery, Soho Gallery Lazerides, Imitate Modern Mayfair, The Hospital Club, Blacks Club, The Groucho Club and Soho House.
Art Critic for the Evening Standard
“Triana’s work embodies the core values of contemporary portraiture,
the ambition to capture something deeply personal, essential even, about the sitter, those effervescent qualities, mysteriously human, that somehow seem be absent in photographic equivalents. They are bold and confident.”

“The first time I saw Triana’s portrait of my face I almost burst into tears.  She captured an aspect of my soul that I just wasn’t expecting to see. Blown away isn’t the half of it. My portrait is a huge part of my life now, and I’ll always be grateful for it. Thank you.”
