Ballet and drawing were Monica's first passions.
In her early twenties, Monica began teaching fitness and had a wonderful career for 20 years. Burnout from the curves of life caused her to change direction, and for the following 10 years, Monica turned to yoga and emotional intelligence to regain her health.
Yoga is a wonderful way to re-set your mind and body towards peace and health.
Monica has always loved art. Her passion extends to portraiture and figurative.
Her style is traditional contemporary.
Her other artistic passion is to illustrate children's books.
Being creative is a wonderful way to reach out and connect with others. All of Monica's work is about creativity, connection and growing compassion.
As a full-time artist, Monica runs some sessions from her Art Gallery in Margate.
Stories are how we connect and communicate.
Community is an important part of Monica's work as she strives to bring connection through her art, books and yoga classes.
Her book 'Yoga for Little Bears' was shortlisted for the Moreton Bay Innovation awards 2016.
Her current work includes 'Virtues with Yoga Bear' and 'Yoga Cards' for fun and games with children.
