The author

Ana Montiel is a London-based, Spanish visual artist and designer. Her work enhances a universe of materials and media that range from screen printing to ceramics, through surface design, videoart and collage. Her influences are as diverse as David Lynch and his holistic approach to creativity, Jung's Red Book, the Arts & Crafts movements, Quantum Physics, Astrology, Yoga or Ayurveda.

Through Ana's latest art project "Visual Mantras" (ongoing) she has explored repetitive drawing as a meditation itself and has developed a series of absorbing and richly coloured geometries that bring up the cyclical rhythm of life. Ana also works as an illustrator, art director and designer and has collaborated with brands such as Nina Ricci, Jo Malone, Carolina Herrera and Anthropologie.

Her art work has been exhibited in Europe and North America.
