BIOGRAPHY Monika creates art in Halifax, Nova Scotia – and sometimes elsewhere, when she’s travelling the world. She is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA), a member of Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS) and ArtSpa. Monika has received a variety of awards and is actively engaged in her own art practice as well as that of her fellow artists through exhibitions, workshops and volunteer work.

Her mixed media paintings and fine art photography are held in private and corporate collections in Canada, Europe, USA and South America. Her work has been published in International Women Celebrate, in the 50th Anniversary Edition of Enroute Magazine, in Exposure, and in Echoes of Elizabeth Bishop and the CBC Sharing the View Calendar.

ARTIST STATEMENT Art has the power to be transformative, to rearrange our vision of the world: territorial, geographic, religious and economic. We are all part of one puzzle, divisible only by our own thoughts and actions. In a world obsessed with darkness, I want to introduce light, hope and joy. What we choose to see and believe will determine how we live, not just where we live.

My paintings incorporate universal symbols such as circles and lines - circles being emblems of unity, wholeness and infinity, and lines representing boundaries which separate us, but which also connect us to one another. Vibrant colours and organic shapes spring out of a spontaneous, intuitive style that invites viewers to ignite their imagination and create an interplay between the artwork, the artist and the viewer.

My photography includes architectural details, focusing on light, lines - form over function as well as images of the people and their culture, revealing a slice of life, a mood, an experience of being in the moment.
