Monica graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 2001 with a first class Design Degree in Printed Textiles. Her work has evolved from the inspiration and techniques she developed during her time at Art College and has involved the exploration of screen-printing onto fabric and manipulating surfaces using batik wax and dye, which then developed into a series of wallhangings.
The inspiration for her work is nature and the surrounding landscape and the imagery and designs she produces are drawn from the shapes and patterns found in this environment. She is particularly interested in creating designs using collage and combining this material with paint, pastel and inks. Recently the wild dandelions found in her garden became the source of her inspiration for the “Wish” series of paintings, using acrylic ink and paint. Monica is continually experimenting with different mediums and surfaces to explore their creative potential. The images are aimed at expressing a stimulating atmosphere which then captures the imagination.
