Drawing on her experience as a designer Monica's progression to portraying her creative vision on canvas has been a natural progression. She is a master colourist who uses bold compositions and varied brushwork to create a contemporary body of artwork. Monica's background in design and her keen sensitivity to the natural world allow her work to represent the best of the elements and principles of design.
"I love to create. Exploring the landscapes and people, finding the different nuances of each, pushing different mediums. I like to express what I see before me. Sometimes it's the colors, sometimes I see lines and shapes, other times it's an object that might be interesting to me. I strive to make each piece have a technical and emotional quality to it. The human experience is the most important part for me."
