Who am I?

I am an art student. I was born in the city of Aveiro, Portugal, and after spending more than 10 years in Spain, I´m currently living and studying Communication Design in the Faculty of Fine Arts of Oporto.

Back in 2014, I started to post my artworks on my Instagram page: @my_drawings_ana_filipa

This allowed me to share my art with the Internet world and getting to know a lot of other online artists, encouraging me to continue working on my passion and getting better with time.

Focusing on practicing as much as I could, my hobby was to draw my favorite celebrities/ characters as realistically as possible. Having used colored pencils for more than 6 years, lately, I´ve been exploring oil painting, diving into my own worlds, combining dreamy dimensions with a touch of surrealism.
