Anya writes, create, collects, story-tells, rents, and sells picture books. Art has always been part of her life. When she was a little girl she danced ballet and loved to draw. Until she grew up and she started studying advertising. She worked as a creative / copywriter for eight years in different advertising agencies in Santo Domingo and that is how she discovered her passion for creating ideas, writing and working with images.
She began her career as a writer in 2008 by launching a collection of illustrated books that motivated children to be curious, to dream, to invent and to use their imagination. Over the years Anya has published 15 picture books and a magazine in the Dominican Republic.
In 2015 she started storytelling, promoting reading with a fun activity. That same year her book “SuperKids” won 5 international awards, promoting inclusion. Then she created the project “Renta un Cuento” in 2016, to bring outstanding picture books from all over the world to thousands of Dominican families every week.
In 2018 she opened a book corner at Galeria 360, one of the most popular shopping centers in Santo Domingo and two of her books were published internationally, in hardcover, in several languages by the European publishers: Algar, Animallibres, Bromera, and Wydawnictwo Dwukropek.
