About | AURA |

Monique has been deeply involved in visual arts for over a decade. In 2006, she began a formal study of visual arts at Fanshawe College in London, ON. After three years of studies in London, she moved to Lethbridge, AB to complete an undergraduate degree at the University of Lethbridge. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts (Studio Art) degree in 2010 and returned to Ontario where she began instructing group and private art lessons with children, adolescents and adults. Monique is currently residing in Toronto, where she is enrolled in the graduate art therapy program at the Toronto Art Therapy Institute. Her practicum settings include: the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto, Youthdale Treatment Centres, Toronto District School Board, and Anishnawbe Health Toronto.

Monique is inspired by the healing journey: "I have the vision to create an Open Studio Space that is accessible to everyone; it is through the freedom of the creative process that imagination and creativity are ignited, connections are restored, meaning is built, passions are discovered, visions are manifested, ideas are born, inspiration becomes contagious, strength is called upon, and all voices and stories are heard. Through my passion for community engagement and collaboration, stories are shared through the art making process. Through a holistic approach, it is my aim to empower people by honing in on individuals' strengths and resiliencies. My goal is to build art projects that lead to a deep sense of understanding while connecting through unity, collaboration and transformation."
