Aheneah is Ana Martins
Lisbon, Portugal



Aheneah is Ana Martins (b. 1996), a Portuguese artist and graphic embroiderer. Aheneah discovered the textile world while taking a Graphic Design bachelor (Esad.CR, 2014-2017) — the improbable match happened while mixing her Design knowledge with her grandmother's embroidery teachings.
Since then, Aheneah’s work has become a handful of battles between digital and analogic processes, type metrics and levels of wool fluffiness.
Her main goal is to deconstruct, decontextualize and transform a traditional technique into a modern graphic, connecting cultures and generations.
