I’m happy you are considering working with me to beautify your life. My work has been featured in Uppercase Magazine (Canada) and Flow Magazine (The Netherlands), among others.

Here are some ways I can be of assistance to you:

  • Hire me to write (a blog post, a magazine article). Current clients include Uppercase Magazine (Canada) and (Portugal). Package value starts at 150€.

  • Hire me to design something for you or your business (a logo, a magazine, a book, a presentation?). Current clients include United Nations’ World Food Programme and Alta Bering (Canada). Package value starts at 450€. 

  • Commission me to create art for you or your business. Current clients include Prevenir magazine (Portugal). Package value starts at 250€. 

  • Hire me to teach a workshop at your office. Looking for a smart way to enhance creativity in the workplace? An embroidery, knitting or drawing workshop will work like magic. Package value starts at 350€.

  • License or get prints of my existing artwork. I create many repeat patterns and illustrations just for fun, as personal work. They are available for licensing and as art prints. Please get in touch to see if it’s a good fit. 


Let’s talk. 


You can also get a taste of what it is like to work with me:

  • by purchasing single embroidery templates in the shop. Single templates priced at 5€. 

  • by joining the air Embroidery Club for six or twelve months. 


Want to know what it’s like to work with me?

My lovely clients at the Magnolia Inn have said the following about working with me:

“As far as working with Ana, in all honesty she is a pleasure to work with. She does what she says and when she says she will do it. Ana was always prompt when responding to our feedback. She listened to our ideas and incorporated them into the sketches like we wanted. And her sketches are beautiful and fun and detailed with an air of whimsy to them… they’re great”.

[By the way, I loved working with them too.]

I loved working with them too.

And the same is true about working with Maria João, who says:

“O trabalho de design é bastante complexo, pois implica a capacidade de conciliar o trabalho técnico com gostos pessoais do cliente, o que acredito nem sempre seja fácil de conseguir. Ao trabalhar com a Ana, sempre a senti dedicada e bastante preocupada em ir de encontro ao que eu pretendia,conseguindo encontrar soluções criativas e perfeitamente alinhadas com os meus interesses e gostos. Só tenho elogios e recomendo vivamente o seu trabalho!”

And the lovely members of the air Embroidery Club say:

“Since joining the air Embroidery Club, I feel more inspired and curious, and am eager to try new embroidery techniques. (…) My embroidery skills were close to zero. After completing an air Embroidery Club project, I feel fulfilled and proud of the finished embroidery.”

(Cristina S., Portugal)

“I love it when I finish an air Embroidery Club project. I’m happy to think of it as team work, combining creativity and skill. I like to imagine new projects with the finished embroidery: wall art, an embroidered quilt, embroidered blankets… So many ideas!”

(Guida Ramos, Portugal)


You may be thinking if there’s something I won’t do. Even though “exposure” is promised as a benefit for participating in speculative work, I won’t engage in that practice.

I am happy to allocate part of my work hours to pro-bono work. If you are a charity, let’s talk.

To work with me, send me an email. You may expect a reply in 1-2 business days. Because I’m usually booked in advance, please allow a minimum of four weeks of work before deadline. An urgent fee may be applied to tighter deadlines.
