About

IMG-8676.jpg

Born in Bogotá, Colombia, Ana lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Growing up, she moved between Nicaragua (her mother’s homeland) while it was undergoing the throes of dictatorship and revolution; Colombia while it was ravaged by narco-terrorism and Cambridge, MA where she was exposed to a diverse community. These inspiring and turbulent environments heightened Ana Maria’s sense of awareness and social conscience and solidified her motivation to use art as a way to spark reflection and conversation.
