Monica is very inspiring to be around. She never stops making you laugh. Her work is very serious and has an almost dark edge to it. She works in all materials: ink, paint, pencil, etc. She takes amazing photos that she turns into really beautiful paintings. Above are a few examples, but there are tons more. She always seams to have a camera with her. Above are just a few of the pictures I found on my hard drive. She does a lot of shows in the LA area, so if you get a chance check one out.
