Teacher, Artist, Author Monica is an artist, author and teacher. She paints in a traditional / contemporary style with oils, and focuses on the figurative and portrait. Growing emotional intelligence through yoga is the focus of her written work, and her books are for educators and children. Her yoga classes are about building mind/body love and self-esteem; as EQ, kinisiology, counselling and a natural diet have been her saving grace from dealing with PTSD and mental health issues.
Monica was born to a German mother and an Australian father. Her mother lived through the bombing of Dresden, and her dad was an Australian soldier who served in Vietnam, Korea and Malaysia. They settled in Eastern Creek in the 60s where Monica and her siblings grew up. Her favourite pastimes as a child was dancing, drawing, and reading (not much has changed).
She had two brothers (one has passed), and one sister. Lots of gorgeous nieces, nephews, daughters and grandchildren. She lives in North Brisbane with her gorgeous family. Thanks for stopping by.
