I draw and paint portraits of ladies with attitude. Apart from myself, my inspirations are women around the world; for some of them, I was lucky to meet and know personally, while others are just women who I came across in pictures of photographers I find online. My art is a reflection and an expression of my attitude towards my own life. I paint which emotions I am facing and living in the moment.
My protagonists are women with strong character and energy, who express raw emotions and aren’t afraid to show their genuine and natural personality. My portraits 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 portraits to show the world how strong humans are, and especially women.
My work speaks the language of the country I live in. My home at his moment is India. Living here makes me spin around in many directions – from laughter to frustration. Living in such a colorful country as India, you definitely cannot ignore the vibrant environment surrounding you. As such, I developed an absolute love of lively and bold colors in combination with always loving black and white that help me bring more empowerment towards women.
Ana Sneeringer is a Slovenian artist, currently residing in Hyderabad, India. Having started her career in documentary journalism as a director of an environmental television station, Ana’s experiences across Jordan, Russia, USA, The Dominican Republic, The Netherlands etc., led her to express her observations & learnings in her contemporary art works. 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 personal encounters resonated with the similarities of emotions and experiences everywhere, rather than the disparities of race or color. Her artistic canvas is a vivid, kaleidoscopic world of thoughts, emotions and experiences shared by the modern woman. Completely self-taught, Ana finds liberation in being able to employ free will and speak from her heart, unconfined by a learned discipline. Whether in watercolor, acrylic or digital media, she gives herself 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 and Canada. She has been featured by All She Makes, Create! Magazine and Beautiful Bizarre Magazine; highly recognizable art platforms for contemporary artists of the 21st century. Her most recent project was a collaboration with five Slovenian contemporary women artists selected by LIDL Slovenia and Europa Donna for breast cancer awareness.

"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.
