Monique paints with deep tonal perspective and vivid feel20161008_171215 in her horizon line abstracts. She manipulates color and line to move the eye to, and beyond, the horizon – evoking open air, the feel of wind in the face, the smell of life in water and earth, and the sheer majesty of looking far to the edge, and beyond.

“I am a painter of the sublime we all feel when standing at the edge of the ocean, looking out across the aquas and greens, taking into the soul the vastness of the water and the limitlessness of the horizon, and knowing the insignificance of our individual joys and sorrows.”

She maintains a studio in New York City and North Yarmouth, Maine. In Maine, nature and quiet provide a space to create, and where she can leave the electric life of New York City behind. Although, life in the city, the charge of creative juice, is what pushes her beyond her horizon.
