Ana da Silva was born in Lisbon, Portugal. She studied foreign languages and literatures (Bachelor Degree). and would soon leave her home towm for Northern Europe, to work abroad.
After aprox. two decades she returned home again and started publishing as independent author, photographer, designer, and lately also as musician (autodidact). She favors a simple, spiritual and harmonious lifestyle and this reflects in all her creative work: inspiration comes straight from the heart. Being creative is for Ana an intuitive process and a genuine necessity.
Most devoted both to motivational, inspirational photo books and travel essays.
Main sources of inspiration are Lisbon and Portugal, urban, maritime and green landscapes, pets and animals in general, local history and traditions, multiculturality, spirituality.
The twelve chapters in this booklet deal each one with a specific theme related to the Portuguese capital: Like tiles, all together they build a mosaic of Lisbon, showing it from many different angles, offering thus an interesting, still subjective, insider view by unveiling less obvious details.
