Nevertheless, who better to describe her work than Rana Raouda herself: “My paintings are vertical, meant to lift one up. It comes from a stubborn belief in love and beauty in a world where these things can be hard to find. This is what my work is about.”

Rana Raouda fluently expresses her love of nature through abstract forms.

Raouda’s lively vivacious canvasses radiate warmth and positivity. Working with acrylics on canvas, Rana creates numerous layers, often in various tones of the same color, giving each painting a sense of depth and movement. Her inspiration comes from life and nature but she paints always from her memory. “When I start a painting I do not plan the entire composition. The desire to express myself comes from within and what my brush conveys are moments that I have captured in my mind’s eye.”
