Monica's earliest memories are centered around the wonders of nature. She has always been amazed by life and all living things, which provided her the basis of her later studies in Biology at University of Republica Oriental del Uruguay. Her interests however went beyond the scientific approach to life. She loved all aspects of the expression of life as well.
Monica began to pursue painting in order to capture the beauty of life, which amazed her so much. Starting with a realistic approach, she has evolved and developed a technique, which adds abstract styles to the realism that one sees in their surroundings. She calls this style “abstract nature”, a free and loose style that is full of color, movement and texture. By using techniques that include the use of a palette knife and impasto, she is able to create active and emotional pieces. The resulting works are of abstract landscapes and florals, such as wildflowers coming out of the canvas and wind moving through the grasses.
Today, she has the great fortune to devote all of her time to professional artistry, offering paintings and portraits in oils and figurative drawings in charcoal and pastels.
"I feel that my art is free and full of emotions and I tend to always follow my heart."
