Her special taste for the dark, gothic and dramatic aesthetics of art soon made this hobbyist turn her professional life completely
into the world of art.She now has her own business: Ana Cruz Arts.

Ana's biggest inspirations are her own secret realms, her deepest emotions and feelings. "The best way to express myself, to
express my soul, is through my art", says the artist.
Her art captures the deepest secrets of human souls, secret realms and dream worlds; the main elements are elegant female

victorian and gothic classic style and, always with a story behind every scenery. A story which someone can always relate to.

am alive."
