Nice to meet you, I'm Monica!
I'm an illustrator, designer, very proud owner of a moka pot, and a Gemini sun. I grew up in Wichita, Kansas before moving to Cincinnati, Ohio to attend undergrad at Xavier University where I graduated with a BA in art, double concentrating in Graphic Design & Photography. I'm now based in Boston, Massachusetts after recently moving in 2021 to begin a new adventure that will enable me to eat lots of tasty food and add "wicked" to my daily vocabulary.
I'd describe my work as colorful, narrative, fun, and a whole lot of trying new things (which also means a whole lot of allowing room for mistakes). While working on art, I love listening to artists like Lucy Dacus or ABBA and drinking a tasty cup of coffee. When I'm not working I can be found exploring Boston, reading books on my kindle, planning what baked good I want to make next, or undertaking my biannual binge of Psych.
Feel free to shoot me a message about my work, say hello, or ask for a presentation about my favorite dog breeds.
