Hi, I’m Ânia!
I’m an extroverted optimist who believes people can and should be happy doing what they love the most for a living.
As I was completing my graduation in Communication Design back in 2011, I spent a few months working together with The Home Project on Projecto TASA. During that time we helped 11 Portuguese artisans by providing them with design, branding and business solutions to bring strategic innovation to the craft industry.
After graduation, I started a software and design company with my partner, where we were able to offer jobs to 5 other designers and software engineers.
Between 2014 and 2018 I worked at The Oatley Academy Of Visual Storytelling, striving to provide the most personal art education anyone can find online. I wore and excelled at many hats such as Production Manager, Content Producer, Team Manager, Project Manager, Student Coach, Assistant Teacher, Community Director, and lastly, Producer for The Oatley Academy ArtCast.
I am the co-founder of Mucancas, a coworking space in Loulé, Algarve, where people from different cultures and professional backgrounds come together to work.
In June 2018 I joined the Etchr Lab team as a Community Influencer. Together, we aim to make the world a better place by helping artists bring their art and creations into it.
During my free time, I write and illustrate my children’s book projects as an aspiring picture book creator and write weekly blog posts where I share my process, struggles and productivity tips with the intent to motivate other artists to create more.
In other words, I’m an artist who loves to help other creatives and to make meaningful art.
