Dr. Sana Sajan – Artist, Philanthropist and Director of Danube Welfare Centre said:” My love of drawing and painting is definitely a part of who I am. For me, painting is about observing and recording my existence as accurately as I can, it's my way of understanding of the world around me and staying constantly engaged with it. I hope that my work evokes emotions in people and they can connect with it in their own unique way.” 

“What I love is how poetic, evocative and intuitive art can be, how it can resonate with our deepest self, our soul, our chore. Moreover, when you put your whole heart into your work, of course you will get the best output. Additionally like always, this event is aiming to create awareness of Thalassemia as a disease using art as a medium.” Added Ms. Sajan

She is not just an artist but a Philanthropist as well, her art supports children with special needs, thalassemia patients etc. In fact she is the director for the Danube Welfare Center, a non-profit social organization offering a plethora of free training courses to help unskilled workers improve their language skills and further develop their careers. “

He further added: “She has been recognized as the next generation leader and also included in super 100 women in the Middle East for her work.” 

Sana's work has been auctioned in Dubai across various events and auctions are held privately.
