She explores the use of watercolour and gouache, as the process is a personal experience of relaxation, one that has no control and an unpredictable outcome.

After completing her studies in Fine Arts at QUT, Monique has found a love for working with people and igniting a creative hobby in all of her students. She thrives from collaborating and fostering the creativity in others.
