Ana Martínez Orizondo, also known for her initials AMO meaning “I love” in Spanish, is a Cuban-born pastel artist, writer, and culture creative living in Shelter Island.


Her work explores themes of ecology and spirituality as well as identity and culture through landscape, nature, and portraiture. She is fascinated by mystical liminal states of in-betweenness, portals to otherness, and amorphous forms. Her tree stories series references animism and the mystical power of non-human beings. Ana is also an art-preneur and community builder.
