Ana is originally from Ponce, Puerto Rico. She has been residing in Houston, Texas since 1983. Her studies include graphic and interior design, architecture, photography, and art history. Where? Texas A&M University and the University of Houston. Her works are in private collections in Holland, Italy, England, Norway, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and throughout the United States. Her works are usually small in size and contain the use of several mediums. She considers her works well balanced, mixed media, orderly perceptions, where less is more.  Ana’s Big Skies photography series encompasses her opinion that most people do not enjoy, contemplate and explore the immense beauty that God gives us on a daily basis. Ana is a purist in photography. She demands her pieces not be photo-shopped or enhanced in any way. She does use a digital camera, for its practical nature and because of the high speed she needs in the chase of sensitive and crucial light moments.

THE WORLD IS BUT A MEDIUM FOR MY EYES. THEY DISCOVER AND SEARCH WITHOUT REST. THEY SEE ORDER AND DISORDER, BALANCE AND IMBALANCE, PERFECTION AND HUMAN NATURE. IN THE END THERE IS ALWAYS BALANCE.
Ana Villaronga

“At the intersection of the celestial, spiritual and artistic, Ana Villaronga has been able to capture the beauty and vastness of the great state of Texas. Knowing how to capture light that constantly appears at the speed of 186 thousand miles per second at the very right instant, and being able to transfer that exact moment into a piece of art that stirs up basic emotions and stimulates the never-ending human need for splendor, is a unique art form that very few master. Ana’s extensive education and impressive experience in the fine arts have allowed her to transfer her skills to this wonderful medium, and has in a surprising short time been able to join a select group of outstanding artistic photographers around the world.”

“Con grande piacere e soddisfazione partecipo alla presentazione dei lavori fotografici di Ana Villaronga sui cieli del Texas a Milano. Ana e' una artista veramente poliedrica essendo riuscita ad esprimere la propria personalita' attraverso i vari media, poesia, pintura, scultura, fotografia. Il ilo conduttore di questi mezzi espressivi e' sempre lo stesso, una grande passione combinata ad una profonda spiritualità'. In questi Texas Skies traspare una leggerezza ed un sentimento che riesce a prenderti ed a farti immaginare il Texas in modo completamente fuori dagli schemi classici, i cowboys ed il petrolio, quindi un posto poetico, puro e leggero capace di infondere una grande sensazione difficile da dimenticare. Grazie Ana di averci dato questa opportunita' un vero e proprio invito ad andare in texas per poter sentire e provare delle sensazioni cosi' forti.

Ho conosciuto Ana da oltre 20 anni in Texas dove ho vissuto per molti anni e lavorato sia come architetto che come insegnate alla Università' di Houston. Ci torno ancora abbastanza spesso e non manco mai di andare nello studio di Ana e scambiare con lei dei bellissimi momenti artistici.”
