About the artist:

Ana Leal is originally from Brazil and is a retired designer/mechanical engineer who has been working with clay since 2011. She fell in love with clay by accident and it has been her passion ever since. Her experience in working with Computer Aided Design has given her an advantage in visualizing the 3-D surface decoration she achieves on her work. She works mainly with porcelain because that gives her a white canvas to work on. She is inspired by tropical nature and uses that in her work by altering, carving and painting on clay. Ana has a passion for sharing her processes with others and will having more workshops in the future. She sells her work via Instagram or her website
