Lana traces her artistic lineage to her great-grandfather, Mohamad Suleiman Khayat, who contributed to the creation and restoration of traditional Syrian Ajami rooms. His work is showcased at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture, and Design in Hawaii. Growing up in a family of unique artistic talent had a profound influence on Lana, ultimately choosing art as her form of expression, as her forefathers before her.
Lana has developed an exceptional artistic direction. From her perspective, nature offers music to those who are truly willing to lend an ear. As an introvert, she has found herself more fluent with Mother Nature than Mankind. Her art describes the free-flowing journey of her conversations with the wilderness; each tone and stroke overflowing with meaning beyond human script or language.
