Biography: Artist: Monika Wright
Canadian artist Monika Wright is a self-taught artist, inspired by other artists with whom she has taken workshops and with the ArtSpa group she paints with regularly.
In 2005 she left behind a hectic career in Toronto for her new life in Halifax. She quickly rediscovered her passion for photography and painting. Then, after a tragedy in her own life, creating art became both her refuge and her passion and a full time career unfolded.
Monika paints in an idyllic setting in Nova Scotia, influenced by the organic shapes of the rugged landscape, by the wild ocean and tranquil lakes that surround her, and by the joyful colours of her imagination.
Soon after she began exhibiting, her works received recognition and have been included in galleries shows and in collections in Canada, the USA, Argentina, Uruguay, Spain and Germany. She is represented by several galleries in Nova Scotia and Ontario.
