Ana Rendon Sanders was born in Columbia, South America. Her family moved to Tucson, AZ, where she spent her adolescence in a bilingual, bicultural home. Ana later attended Northern Arizona University where she was formally trained in ceramic arts and metalsmithing, earning her BFA.
Her sense of adventure led Ana to travel throughout Europe and Morocco, but her love of the desert took her to Boulder, Utah where she spent a summer exploring the spectacular scenery of the area. Ana was drawn to root herself in the community and allow her life to blossom. In the company of her husband and now her daughter, Ana has journeyed along many creative paths: nurturing gardens, learning the art of primitive pottery, and discovering the breadth of the fiber arts through various forms of spun, woven, knit, and felted fiber textiles.
Ana's current work in metal smithing celebrates the plasticity and intrinsic beauty of silver, brass and gold. Her overall focus is in forged metals, which she personally hand forges. Ana enjoys exploring the intricate patterns found in nature. The study of these details often finds expression in her jewelry. Ana's jewelry designs are available in boutiques and galleries within Utah, and now Colorado through Harmony Scott Jewelry Design.
