Recently Lana was selected by the Art Tour International as one of the Top 60 MASTERS OF CONTEMPORARY ART 2016, and accepted to Art Renewal Centre one of the most prestigious art organization in the wold.
Lana believes that human experience and emotions are most naturally and profoundly expressed through art. A work of art can capture all of the beauty and pain of life, and hold onto it. For her, art brings personal growth: "I can step back from my creation and uncover deeper layers of myself. This expanded vision inspires my future work and my teaching. If a viewer can identify him or herself, or make a connection with my art, then the viewer can believe that what is felt is real and justified. Art brings faith, and faith is what we all are searching. Through art, people find their own inner peace and envision or become aware of a better place for themselves in this world."
