Art has been a central part of Mona’s life from a very early age. She started with pencil and charcoal drawings then gravitated towards watercolors. In her formative years she became a frequent visitor of art museums and spent many hours mesmerized by paintings that captured the changing effects of atmosphere such as Monet’s Lily Pads.
Mona is a realist artist, intrigued with painting details with the least amount of brush strokes and letting the colors bleed into shadows. Her paintings capture her attention to the different qualities of light that transform a scene. She continues to experiment with watercolor techniques to better capture the uniqueness of areas and the feeling of being there.
Biggest achievements, exhibits, awards: a finalist in the Artist’s Magazine Annual Competition in the Still Life category, featured artist of the month in the Artist’s Magazine, local competitions and art shows. Mona is a member of the Minnesota Watercolor Society.
