Ana was born in Lima, Peru, and since 1993, she lives in Florida, United States. She’s a passionate seeker of art and culture since her Lima, Peru years. She has been drawing and painting all of her life. Exploring museums and archaeological sites fueled her dreams of becoming an artist.
Art has always been her passion but Ana was encouraged to pursue another career path growing up. While art remained her only love, she ultimately obtained degrees in Education and Graphic Design where she was able to take many fine art courses. In 2003 she became an award-winning graphic designer for influential publishing companies. She also learned from workshops taken later on at the New York Academy of Art with Dan Thompson and Andrew Conklin and Melisa Calabria.
Ana is the founder of a small business in graphic design and fine arts, Ana Gonzales Studios since 2007, now Ana Gonzales Art. She currently works from her new home in the Sunshine State of Florida, full-time on her own after painting over 9000 portraits for a pet supplies company since 2018. She aims to beautifully capture every pet’s unique personality and charm. Let her be your Pet Portrait Artist, you’ll be surprised!
