Upon the invitation of hoteliers Justin and Jason Uy, chairperson and CEO of the luxury first and only of its kind JPark Island Resort and Water Park, respectively, Ana presented her three-series collection entitled Sparks of Hope at the majestic grand ballroom of the property.
Present at the ribbon-cutting were the inseparable brothers, Lapu-Lapu City first lady Cindy Chan and resort manager Jonathan Nowell.

Spurred by her creative imagination and known for the distinct imagery of her subjects, Ana uses vivid colors that radiate. Her works immerse the viewers on themes of nature, humanity, identity and solitude. Her artworks are fruits of her love, aspirations and meaningful life experiences.

The first series, entitled The Canvas in Mind, was conceptualized during the initial lockdowns while still residing in Ankara, Turkey. It addressed the impact of quarantine on mental wellness. During this time of solitude, she likewise composed an inspiring poem with the same title.

The Chrismus or Bulaklakan series came about through a fusion of Christian and Muslim traditions. While the Bulaklakan dance is usually offered to the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Catholic belief, the shape and shades were reminiscent of the beautiful sarimanok, the legendary mythical bird from the Muslim provinces of Mindanao.

The rest of the artworks were from the Christmas postcard series, where the spirit of the Holidays lives on with much love, hope and gratitude.

Ana, a prolific writer of children’s stories, is likewise known for her books Welcome Abroad and Binibining Stewardess. The author wishes to continue inspiring her audience with love, optimism and appreciation, through her delicate brush strokes and poetry.
