'Selah' art   

Connecting you to Nature’s Divine Beauty in a World Full of Noise





My paintings create a ‘selah’ space: a space to stop, Pause and be still;

to connect with divine peace and allow beauty to heal.




I know how chaotic life can easily become, juggling work, family, social life personal projects and other demands. This can leave you feeling stressed, distracted and disconnected with your true feelings and needs. You feel drained and easily stressed.

Your are looking for a space to recharge, find balance and connect with your self again. A space of beauty and art that helps you unwind and relax. Self-care is a must to keep the balance of your life.

Welcome to Merna Liddawi Fine Art

I’m an award-wining artist Merna Liddawi. I specialise in bringing nature’s Divine beauty into your home. I use ancient techniques, genuine gold, and carefully curated hand-made materials to create one-of-a-kind sensational art meant to help you meditate and pray.

I’m passionate about creating what I call a ‘Selah’ Space with my paintings; it’s a serene space where the painting acts as a ‘window’ to experience healing and inner peace in a crazy, chaotic world

How do I do that?

I bring Nature’s Divine Beauty into your home.

It’s by my unique process and technique that I developed over many years where the three natural kingdoms of the earth come together in each painting. The animal kingdom where I take the egg and glue; the vegetable kingdom where I take the wood, and the mineral kingdom where I take pigments like Azurite and genuine gold.

So all of creation is united together in the process of painting so the painting becomes a microcosm of the cosmos. It becomes a prayer, an offering back to God for the beauty of creation.
