Monica A. Wilkins

I was born in Schenectady, New York and have painted since I was 12. I have always painted with oils and was introduced to acrylics in high school. I graduated from SUNY at Farmingdale with an Advertising Art and Design degree in 1970.

After working in the commercial field for a few years I continued my education in Vermont and earned a BA from Castleton State College. Upon moving to West Virginia from Cincinnati I became involved with watercolors.

I continually take workshops and become introduced to many different styles of applying paint which is reflected in my work and also in the studio class that I teach.

I was juried into the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society as well as WVWS.

I was commissioned to do a wall mural at a local wine bistro's deck walls, Slight Indulgence. It is here that I have had 3 solo shows.

It has been exciting and challenging working with watercolors, acrylics and now and then the water mixable oils. With these mediums I try to capture the glow of light and color and put as much emotion into my work as possible and bring more joy into the world. I want people to see what I see and feel.
