Born in Jamaica, Monica moved with her parents to Cornwall in 1956. She trained at Falmouth Art School, and the Painting School of the Royal College, becoming an Associate in 1966 and winning the David Murray Scholarship for Landscape Painting in the same year.
For many years, Monica lived in Oxford, teaching for St Clare’s on their Graduate and IB programs and on their summer program in Venice.
In 1997 Monica relocated to Exmoor to concentrate on her own work. She paints mainly in watercolours, gouache, pen and ink and Acrylics. She is influenced by the time she spent in Canada and the landscapes of the Group of 7. Loving Exmoor, she seeks to celebrate its beauty in her work, concentrating on trying to create harmony in her paintings and to capture the light and colours of the surrounding countryside.
Monica has exhibited widely including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford and The South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts. She was a member of the Oxford Art Society, has exhibited with galleries in Somerset, Devon, Oxfordshire, and Glasgow and demonstrated for several years at Art In Action, Oxford.
