My art practice is not precisely something I am making up. Instead, it is coming as an inner call to paint my story, and I want to vocalize it through my portraits and figures. My art is about human rights with a woman as a leading depiction. My protagonists are women with strong character and energy who express raw emotions and aren't afraid to show their genuine and natural personalities. Female figures in my art represent quirky and unique ladies of real life, enjoying or learning to enjoy themselves by accepting themselves as unity and converting this realization into the superior power of proudness and achievability. We can't run from the daily emotions we face. I need to capture and express these feelings through my work to show the world how strong humans are, especially women.
My work speaks the language of the country I live in at the moment. In April 2022, I moved to the United States, where I am continuing to live an inspiration, I've collected that shaped me for over a decade of living in different countries around the world. I am currently focusing on how changes impact women lives who celebrate themselves outside their comfort zone. We all cope great in a comfort zone, but we only stagnate or bloom very slowly in that state. You are left with a blank canvas to paint your new story when you lose your comfort zone. Playing with subjects like cars and plants is my synonym for understanding the speed, durability, and strength one chooses to go in life.
Ana Sneeringer is a Slovenian artist residing in Montgomery AL, USA. Having started her career in documentary journalism as a director of an environmental television station, Ana’s experiences across Jordan, Russia, France, the USA, The Dominican Republic, The Netherlands, and India, led her to express her observations & learnings in her contemporary artworks. Women or the female presence form the epicenter of her artistic exploration and stories. Living around the world and engaging with women from different cultures, Ana’s encounters resonated with the similarities of emotions and experiences everywhere, rather than the disparities of race or color. As a result, her artistic canvas is a vivid, kaleidoscopic world of thoughts, emotions, and experiences shared by the modern woman. Entirely self-taught, Ana finds liberation in employing free will and speaking from her heart, unconfined by a learned discipline. Whether in watercolor, acrylic, or digital media, she gives herself the freedom to experiment based on her subject matter.
Ana’s art has been exhibited internationally in the United Arab Emirates, Italy, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, India, and Switzerland. All She Makes, Create! Magazine and Beautiful Bizarre Magazine; highly recognizable art platforms for contemporary artists of the 21st century and World of Interiors; the most influential design and decoration magazine from Conde Nast had featured her work. She had been interview by Adobe2 and many other magazines. One of her projects was collaborating with LIDL Slovenia and Europa Donna to raise awareness of breast cancer through her artwork. In 2020 one of her artworks was exhibited and is now part of their collection in one of three National museums in India, Salar Jung Museum, Hyderabad, India.

"Ana's art is bold with color, brave with images, fierce with female portraits" - Heidi M.C.
"I like the bold color and your drawing style combined. I like that you’re drawing women but not as sexual objects to please men but instead you capture the essence of what it means to be a woman in all its diversity and forms. All your women are beautiful in their own way and you capture what is unique in each of them." - Claire M.
I have sat with my painting for a few days and have found that
She is insulated, fiercely protective of the wisdom she has gained in battle. She knows her power and the sacrifices made to earn it. She will be careful in revealing herself as she finds peace in her own stillness and solitude. - Leigh T.
