About

Hello! If you’re reading this you are probably curious about the person behind all this artwork. My name is Monika and I’m in my late 20’s. I’m American but I live in the UK now which is a pretty big adventure I decided to undertake. Life is all about adventure and chasing your dreams and I’ve managed to get this far on my own steam which is pretty cool. Unfortunately it’s been a long and difficult road since, and I’m not where I want to be yet artistically, but I know I will be with time and effort. Life has a knack for getting in the way and it’s doing a bang up job of that in my case, but we fight the good fight and live on.

Enough whining- the long and short of it is, I really enjoy drawing, I’m very passionate about it. One of the things I’d really like to do with my life is teach art to others and I know that with enough effort and time I’ll reach my goals, however far away they may seem at the moment.

My influences are few and far between.. some artists I am fond of, or was fond of at one point in time include Tim Burton, Edward Gorey, Paul Kidby and a few other illustrators whose names escape me. My studies have improved my work a thousand times over and I am grateful for all of the time and effort my father, instructors and friends have given me. Without them I’d still be that lame little artist scratching out badly proportioned people on notebook paper.

 

So have a look through the blog, you can see my progression from style to style and you can see the unfortunately massive gaps between work where something has come up, hopefully in the future those gaps will diminish. Thanks for taking the time to read all this nonsense!
