Monique spent her youth exploring the forests, lakes, rivers, and mountains of South Eastern British Columbia, Canada. After creating a niche business in Backcountry Catering, and working full time as an adventure chef for over a decade, she decided it was time to wholeheartedly pursue her true passion of creating art. 
Monique primarily works with Acrylics, and her paintings are inspired by the wild places she has explored, and the adventures she has experienced. Monique is very passionate about nature and outdoor pursuits, and can often be found hiking with camera in hand capturing the beauty of the world around her for future paintings. Her love of nature and adventures shines through in all her work.
It is an honor to provide the opportunity for others to have an original painting of their own “Adventure Memories”. Monique would love to hear from you! Please email for more information regarding purchases or commissions.
