Monica Mohnot grew up in Kolkata, India and now lives in Austin, Texas. She is a painter inspired by everything in nature: shapes, patterns, textures, sounds and colors. The relationship between the simplicity of the physical organic world and complexity of life and nature is a theme in her art. She aims to evoke emotion through her choices of colors and movement. Her work hints at a mysterious relationship between a deep inner reality and the extensive universe. She is currently studying for her Bachelor of Fine Arts in San Marcos, TX. When not making paintings or studying, she enjoys spending time with her family.
