Hello. My name is Ana. I was born in the small island to the south of Portugal that gives name to Madeira Wine and I have not always liked skirts. Since I grew closer to dad than mom I was a bit of a tomboy. But things that happen to girls came to happen to me. And so I stopped peeing on the bed, calling out for the sun on cloudy days, and selling filtered earth to my neighbors in coffee jars. Then I started reading and writing and painting and stuff..
Folks said I would become a business woman; my grand mother said I would become a writer; my father was hopping I would become a doctor; and my mother new that I had her taste for arts yet hoped for a more secure line of work for me.

Truth is, even after a small and frustrating attempt in the science world, a not so smooth swift to the art world, followed by 6 troubled art school years I still haven't made up my mind.. there's just so much I love doing. I live anguished with the idea that there is just not enough time for it all.
I love working with my hands and getting them dirty; I love reading and watching movies; I love the process of animating; I love siting on the passenger's seat for ours; and I love eating,.
I came to Etsy because I dream of being my own boss, working from home and sustain myself from my own work. I admire people who have the guts to do so and I found plenty here at Etsy. I am here to accomplish that dream.

To all Etsy sellers: thank you for the inspiration and for making me believe this is possible!
