Creative edits

Ana makes tailor-made images and content, performing simple to highly creative edits. Attention to detail from a design perspective, is Ana’s way. Intertwined with clarity, achieved using only high resolution .jpeg/.tiff files, to produce a full spectrum artwork.

As each job is unique, a quotation service is available. Send your photo(s) to

My rates depend on what you have in mind. Please see my ‘Art recordings’ page for ideas.

Turnaround time is (typically) 7-10 days, as I might need to take additional photos to create the artwork you have in mind. In most cases, I’d cut the background from your photo and add layers of other photos.

Ana's relevance to the ‘Amelie’ film

Ana is an artist and mother of a two year old performing artist called Amelie. Amelie was named after the French film ‘Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain’ by director ‘Jean-Pierre Jeunet’. This film is rich in colour, has beautiful detail throughout and is wonderfully quirky. Right up my alley! It’s kind of how I fashion my art.

I’ve worked in graphics (inclusive of professional photo retouching), film, theatre and the web. Freelancing in the various fields, now specialising in creative portraits. I’ve studied Visual Communications at UTS (2006) and have a Fine Arts Diploma from Meadowbank Tafe (2002).

Ana is inspired by nature, old architecture, ornate vintage jewellery, gothic inspired designs, basically anything styled on the Victorian era. So ecstatic (yes that’s my chosen word!) to have recently moved to an area nearby the ‘dark sky’ observatory ‘Crago Observatory’ in Bowen Mountain. For Ana, from a creative perspective, it’s a never ending desire to photograph 24/7.
