b. 1986, HK.


Ana is a designer and artist based in Brooklyn, born in Dallas, and raised in suburban Philly. In 2013 she earned a BFA in Film/Animation/Video at the Rhode Island School of Design. After working in commercial animation as a stop-motion and 2D animator, in 2018 she changed careers to design.

The “J” stands for Jeanae, given by her grandfather. It is not her first name as he intended, because in Korean it is a homonym for “centipede,” and her parents put their foot down. 

Ana's design sensibility is playful and thoughtful. When possible she enjoys incorporating traditional approaches to art and design. She loves to work with her hands and use different materials. She is inspired by children's book illustration and fine art painters.

She loves hojicha, hiking, and dogs.
