Thank you Monica for sharing your expertise in painting, for your helpful tips regarding color values, new product information and for your artistic inspiration.
Monica gave us the generous donation of her beautiful demo painting (Dandelion) for the PYLAA High School Juried Art Competition Effort.
Monica’s paintings and graphics can be seen on the walls of the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and Orange County’s Paleo Museum at Clark Park. Her work also includes illustrated educational children’s books for Harcourt, Brace and Javonovich.
Monica enjoyed a satisfying 14-year career at the Orange County Register newspaper, where her work has won multiple international awards for excellence in Illustration and Infographics from the Society of News Design.
In 1994, Monica was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for her illustrated work in Environmental Journalism. Monica has also taught Visual Journalism at California State University, Long Beach and continues to lead Plein Air Painting groups as a docent for the Irvine Ranch Conservancy.
The versatility and diversity of Monica’s art are demonstrated by the fact that her paintings have been sold at national retail chain stores and also exhibited and sold at juried art shows.
