Tagsmart Weekly Discovery: Ana Palma

Ana Palma is a Portuguese artist and illustrator based in London. She moved to London in 2015 where she is developing her careers as a freelancer and visual artist. Ana trained at the Faculty of Fine Art of Porto with a BA in Fine Arts and an MA in Teaching Visual Arts.

Ana’s practice intends to explore the relationship between human beings and Nature. Women, insects, and other natural elements are brought together, as a result of her fascination and longing for the natural world. Her drawing idiosyncrasy and her curiosity for colour and its transparencies are explored through a variety of materials but mainly watercolour and watercolour pencils on paper.

Ana’s creative process always begins with a drawing, usually from photographs and objects that she collects. Intuition has an important role in the artworks’ composition, as Ana allows herself to be free to make choices based on what she feels. Therefore, each artwork is an experience that results in a figurative style, expressing her personal journeys to memories, emotions, and symbolism.
