Featured artist for November

Monica Linares

 

Monica Linares was born and raised in Venezuela and was always surrounded by paint and paintbrushes thanks to an artistic father.  With a background in advertising, she was permanently in contact with design, color and style, but it was not until 1999 that she formally started her formation as a painter at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts.  Monica has a graphic style, and many have called her a colorist.  She aims for simplicity, interesting design and strong brushwork.

You can see Monica’s work at www.monicalinares.com and at the North Carolina Museum of Art Store.
