Monique Medeiros is a visual artist working and living in Toronto. She graduated from OCAD University with a Bachelors of Fine Art and has been working in a variety of mediums including acrylic, watercolour, and pastels. Her inspiration is derived from her love of travel. After spending 2 and a half months backpacking through Europe and Iceland, she moved to Calgary to explore the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains. It is these experiences that have shaped and fuelled her passion for landscape paintings. In addition to exhibiting in group shows over the last 10 years, Monique is also a vendor at the Arts Market selling her framed original pastel paintings, prints and cards.
