Ana was raised in Brasilia, amongst 60’s modern architecture from Oscar Niemeyer’s concrete curved buildings, Athos Bulcao's amazing tile murals, to Burle Max gardens. “Of course at this time my surroundings were just home for me, for I didn’t realize how different my settings were and how much my city would influence me and my vision towards aesthetics”.
Prior to moving to the United States in 2010, Ana graduated in Communications at the University of Brasilia, soon after she earned a “Maitrise” degree in “Etudes Cinematographique et Audiovisuelle” at Sorbonne University III in Paris, where she lived for 4 years.
