For Dana, the act of artistic creation is inseparable from notions of the real world. In times where socio-political changes compose an inherent part of our reality, Dana chooses to reflect the context within her work, consequently creating politically and socially engaged art. Dana’s work challenges colonial narratives, explores indigenous identities, and aspects of womanhood and community. This approach unfolded as a result of her years of work with INGOs and Government bodies, and her International training spanning Europe, Africa & the Middle East focusing on community participation and development.
Growing up with women who painted, sewed, designed, and made art, Dana extends herself through artistry and has a long-standing fascination with detail. Working from a workshop studio in Jabal al Weibdeh -Amman, herwork involves experimenting with material and is constantly evolving.
She participated in exhibitions in Amman, Washington and Connecticut, and she curated an exhibition in collaboration with an academic entity. Dana’s work has been published in World Literature Today and Discontent magazines.
