As a child, Monique loved drawing, imagining and creating.
When it came time for her to select a career path, it became clear her heart had been leading her toward a life of illustration.
At age 19 Monique headed off to the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa, where she studied animation at City Varsity. There she discovered the magic of storytelling. She was then employed by one of the only animation companies in South Africa at the time, Clockwork Zoo. She had the opportunity to work on an animation for the Disney channel called “Florrie’s Dragons”.
Today, Monique is a freelance illustrator and her passion is creating images that encompass light, life, warmth and color.
