Born in Chile, Ana Navarrete(Leyton) has lived in Quebec since 1979. Her interests in drawing and painting develop at a very young age. She completed her studies at the School of Arts in Santiago and continued her training with the painters Humberto Zacarelli and Charles Garo. For several years, his artistic repertoire specializes in still lifes and landscapes, both in oil and watercolor, inspired mainly by the country character and the indomitable relief of his native land.

His acclimatization in Quebec inspires him a new impetus. Major changes are needed in her themes and techniques and a new passion for contemporary painting and clay sculpture awaken in her. His palette is always alive, spontaneous and contrasting mark his works and show his deep attachment to her art.
