I’m Ana, I’m glad to see you here. This is my place where I come to cherish life a little more.

Being an artist is just one aspect of me. I’m also a Design Professional, Writer, Sivananda Yoga Teacher, & a humble Happiness Developer.

I live with my loving husband and super son in Gurgaon, India. These two people inspire me to become everything that I don’t know I am, simply put; they bring out the ‘creative’ best in me!

I worked as a creative professional in advertising for 12 long years, but real life began for me when I quit it. For the first time in my life, I had time. Time to feel the energy that flows in the universe; the energy that you are made of, I am made of.

‘The position of the artist is humble. He is essentially a channel. ~ Piet Mondrian                                                                                     

My creative process begins by centering myself. By creating a still in my environment, I let my intuition guide me, and then I allow the grace of existence to flow through me. The choice of medium varies from watercolor to mixed media depending on whether I’m feeling fluid or more experimental in terms of texture and form. My works represent my thoughts and energy at the moment I created them. My process is spontaneous yet guided by my subconscious. The works are open to interpretation by the viewer according to their life experiences, memories, and how they relate to them.

I am also known as Vandana Jain. Being Ana is a process of unbecoming, of peeling layers and layers of what I am not. It is purifying and absolutely liberating. It is an inward odyssey of coming home.

My intent is to give back everything I receive from nature, and put the energies back into the rhythm of the universe.

Besides creating art, happiness and joy for you here, I’m working on a collection of short stories.

I’d love to know what your theories in life are, and what inspires you. Do comment! There will be a lot of LINK LOVE here! So if you are an artist, photographer, or a creator of pretty things, feel free to send me an Email at Ana.prettypinkpebbles(at)gmail(dot)com with the link to your work, I’d love to see, and perhaps share your work here!

If you wish to slow down and enjoy the scenery around you, come along with me on this journey called life, and let’s pocket a few pebbles on our way!

  10. Life is all about balance. good is because evil is. we can only hope to live in an ideal world where everything is good, but we must embrace the evil around. Life is what we make of it.

  11. Best is to carry the Home with you.
    Home is where you are heart is.
    Heart is where your Home is.
    Thanks for visiting my site.
    I see that you are from the Ad,.industry.
    What are your views on the Ad Industry’s copy writing, which, it seems to be, consists of twisted facts, blatant lies,all couched under Creativity and ‘service to the Client’.?
    And cheap exploitation of women by portraying them as a piece to be enjoyed..?

    • Hi there!

      The sarcasm in your comment made me smile.

      Please be kind to ad folks. People do any thing to make a living. They are just writing copy. And some of them are doing a great job there. Lets try and see the positive.

      Besides that, the buyer today is very informed and very smart. He knows what he is buying.

      And as far as objectifying women is concerned I totally detest that, be it Advertising or Bollywood. Although I must say it was a pleasant surprise to hear anger in a man’s voice regarding the same. We still have hope.

      • Sarcasm was unintended.,sorry.
        Point this people who can make a difference towards knowledge by the power of pen , might consider doing only what is good.
        However you have a point as one has to make a Living.
        Yet the moment we shirk our responsibilities, we contribute to the ills we often decry.
        Having said that , is that not the way Life is?

  12. Your bio reminds me of the author of the Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin 🙂

    Anyway I love your artwork I wish I can draw too lol! 🙂

    Thanks for dropping by Ana and God bless you!

    Be an inspiration! 😉

  13. welcome and thanks for reading my words, i look forward to reading yours. like you, i used to work in the ad biz, and changed careers at 40, went back to school and became a teacher. now i have more time, still get to be creative and no stress. )
