Monica always enjoyed drawing the human face even in her youth because of the excitement in capturing the essence and realism of the face.
Both of her parents were artistically inclined and helped develop her drawing skills. She ended up attending the well respected Cass Technical High School, selecting the Commercial Art curriculum studies. Although there was never a primary focus of study just in drawing the raw the human face, basic drawing processes helped hone her natural abilities.
Velour has become her favroite surface for painting with pastels. It is the most like working with charcoal on linen paper - - the first medium she worked with that developed her style of rendering. It performs and gives the results she so appreciated and enjoyed -- soft blended tones.
She has rendered over 100 portraits, some as repeat clients requesting 2 and more paintings of famiy members for themselves or as gifts. Her clients have been from her local metro area and out of state from California, Georgia, and New York.
Portraits are now completed by appointments due to the time and intricate nature necessary for creating these unique works of art.
