Sana is a self-taught artist of spirit exploring and practicing Islamic Art for almost two decades, after being guided to it by world-renowned Scholar and Sufi Saint, Shaykh Hisham Kabbani. She was born in Quetta; Pakistan, mainly raised in B.C. Canada, and now resides in Houston Texas; U.S.A. Her work has been displayed in some of the most prestigious galleries around the country with publications in various media outlets such as Houston Chronicle, and NPR.
After living a seclusive lifestyle and suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis since her early teens, she was blessed with a miraculous divine intervention —exactly at age 33— that led to a mystical awakening of an explosion and expansion of consciousness and heart —taking quantum leaps into unseen territories she never imagined even existed prior, which influences her art as an embodiment of the whole. Her work can best be described as a mesh of traditional Arabic calligraphy, and bold yet detailed illumination, with a hint of contemporary trends.
The formations are designed as unique compositions ingrained with profound Sufi spiritual insights that inspire and invoke the outer and inner aspects of Islamic art and knowledge, and all its richness. Each piece is a dual expression of her life’s journey into meditative states and the unveilings created by the process of profound divine synchronicities, visions of the colors of a heavenly paradise —with an all-pervasive quality of the metaphysical.
