illustrating life coloring with needle

soils are the earth's skin
rivers are the earth's veins
rocks are the earth's bones
illustration + screenprint + embroidery

there are moments forever engraved like the name of the lovers carved on the old oaks
I'm Ana Raimundo, the maker behind fric de mentol and my work embraces my life and life connects with my work

. before 1996
I was born on 78, I used to play flute and cavaquinho (similar to Ukulele) in a juvenile orchestra, I studied arts

. after 2001
I graduated in fine arts, I worked in a small studio of handmade tiles, painting landscapes for tourists and traditional tiles

. 2003 - 2012
I started a new journey due to my husband's job as a biology teacher, moving each year and living in different corners of Portugal
Using my hands and being self employed, the need of a portable job lead me to open an etsy shop

. 2012
Due to austerity measures my husband lost his job
At the same time a fire devastated the small village where my grandparents were from
These two happenings lead us to a life we always wanted and since September of that year we live happily in a more remote place surrounded by mountains and xisto, embracing a new inspiring journey, growing our vegetables and aromatic herbs and planting native trees, trying to restore some life from the ashes:

. 2015
Sebastião was born on January

We still have the goal to raise a couple of Serrana goats and Pedrês chickens and to re-build the 100 years old rock home with a studio for my work

Pedrês chickens living happily with us already

.I have a collection of photos here:

. life samples:

.My work is featured on The New Artisans book:
