Have you ever dreamed of traveling the world, collaborating with designer brands, and building an art career as an artist? If so, you're not alone. Many of us have dreams of breaking free from the ordinary and embracing a life filled with creative expression and exploration.

In the latest episode of Art & Cocktails, Kat had the pleasure of sitting down with Ana Sneeringer, a Slovenian artist currently residing in Alabama, USA. Ana's journey from documentary journalism to a globally acclaimed artist is nothing short of inspiring. Her story will ignite your passion and encourage you to dream bigger, follow your intuition, and carve out your own path as an artist and artpreneur.

Ana Sneeringer is a Slovenian artist residing in Alabama, USA. Having started her career in documentary journalism as a director of an environmental television station, Sneeringer’s experiences across Jordan, France, Russia, The USA, The Dominican Republic, The Netherlands, and India, led her to express her observations & learnings in her contemporary artworks. Women or the female presence form the epicenter of her artistic exploration and stories.

Living around the world and engaging with women from different cultures, Sneeringer’s encounters resonated with the similarities of emotions and experiences everywhere, rather than the disparities of race or color. As a result, her artistic canvas is a vivid, kaleidoscopic world of thoughts, emotions, and experiences shared by the modern woman. Entirely self-taught, Sneeringer finds liberation in employing free will and speaking from her heart, unconfined by a learned discipline. Whether in watercolor, acrylic, or oil paints, she gives herself the freedom to experiment based on her subject matter.

Sneeringer’s art has been exhibited internationally in the United Arab Emirates, Italy, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, India, and Switzerland. All She Makes, Create! Magazine and Beautiful Bizarre Magazine; highly recognizable art platforms for contemporary artists of the 21st century and World of Interiors; the most influential design and decoration magazine from Conde Nast had featured her work. She had been interviewed by Adobe2 and many other magazines. One of her projects was collaborating with LIDL Slovenia and Europa Donna to raise awareness of breast cancer through her artwork. In 2020 one of her artworks was exhibited and is now part of their collection in one of three National museums in India, Salar Jung Museum, Hyderabad, India. In December 2022 her artwork was exhibited on the screens of Times Square, NYC.

Ana's experiences of traveling the world, falling in love, and collaborating with designer brands have shaped her unique artistic career. From documenting stories in far-flung corners of the globe to expressing her observations through contemporary artworks, Ana's journey is a testament to the power of creativity and the pursuit of one's passions.

Throughout our conversation, Ana shared insights into her creative process, the universal themes of femininity and human emotion that permeate her work, and the profound impact of her collaborations.

If you've ever felt the urge to break free from convention and forge your own path in the world of art, then Ana's story is for you.
