The Musee met with here and asked her 3 questions and this was what she had to say...

[musee] - 1. If you could be in a book of worlds record's for having the largest collection of one certain kind of thing...what would that be a collection of?

[monica[ - Day of the Dead skull collection.

[musee] - 2. If you were a song...what song would you be?

[monica] - Twinkle Twinkle Little Star: This song came about from the English poem, "The Star" by Jane Taylor. A small excerpt that has strong meaning and is used to soothe children around the world. I consider myself to be a source of positive energy for those close to me.

[musee] - 3. What did you want to be when you were a kid and does your art have anything to do with that?

[monica] - mortician/astronaut/opera singer/mermaid: Ever since I was a kid I would make chaotic drawings that had an ellaborate story that I would have to verbally tell. I couldn't stick to just one idea. I was interested in exploring a little bit of everything. This carries over to my adulthood. I love exploring ideas and topics ranging from life, death, fantasy and reality. Currently my work focuses on drawings of "organisms". They are fictional molecular forms that can either be sea life or bodily cells. Life and art is what we make it to be. They collide and fuse together..
