Steeped in a tradition of lively culture and richness of color, Monica’s childhood in Monterrey, Mexico inspired her appreciation for art at a very young age and continues to influence her own art today.

Through a mixed media technique involving rich color combinations of acrylics and stains along natural wood grains, each piece is an absolute one-of-a-kind, representing her greatest inspirations: nature, culture and individuality.

More than just a hobby, Monica sees art as an opportunity to express life through her eyes; and her work reflects the beautiful contrast between the simplicity and complexity of nature.

ยป Monica’s artwork is currently on exhibit in the Micro-Gallery at Manuel’s Downtown, through September 30th. You can also visit to see more of her artwork.
