Ana Livingston was born in Argentina, in 1941, lived in Paris in the sixties where she tool up life drawing classes at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. She subsequently attended classes at the Heatherly School of Arts in London, before returning to Paris in 1981, where she joined the studio of Sophia Vari, Ana's leading mentor.

Ana's work is inspired by the spanish still life painters of the XVIIth century (Sanchez Cotan). The mood and light of her compositions are reminiscent of XVth century italian painters. Her paintings retain an element of simplicity, stemming from her study and observation of J. S. Chardin's work. This is more noticeable in her glass and basket paintings.

In 1993, she moved to Provence where she now lives and where she has held exhibitions, in Gordes (1996), Avignon (1998) and Isles-sur-la-Sorgue (1999).

Her work is also shown at the Brian Sinfield Gallery (Oxford) where she will hold a second exhibition in June 2003. More recently, an exhibition of her work and other still life painters was held at the Albermarle Gallery in London. (September 2002)
