New prints arrived in our home last week and while there were laying on our dining table my son started asking me all sorts of questions about the beautiful illustrations and that is what I LOVE so much about Ana Ventura's work…they start a conversation, bring you to a fairy-tale world and are so full of love, about connecting with each other and starting new life.

If you would be able to visit our home than you would definitely notice my adoration for Ana her work, some of the (in)visible pieces are above our dining table, another lady hangs in our bedroom and 'tell me a story' hangs in our hallway….Thank you Ana!!


…and yes the paper ladies above are on my wish-list 🙂

All work is available in Ana Ventura's webshop right here and the new prints 'Amor' and 'Waiting for You' are also available via the lovely online shop Twig right here

    I love the image with the roots and figure. It’s also great to hear about how your son was inspired by the art.

    Irene – Such a lovely post on Ana’s work. It is because of you and Bloesem that I learned of Ana and eventually working with her on the letterpress print series.
