Monique is a fine art photographer based on the Sunshine Coast QLD. “In all of my work, I seek imagery that is inspirational and has both depth and feeling; I enjoy capturing fleeting moments, I am fascinated by birds and love spending time in nature.”
Monique spent 10 years years in Canada and the USA. She studied art and design at Capilano University and Emily Carr University in Vancouver, Canada. She has always been fascinated by birds, and whilst in Canada she participated in a number of exhibitions; at the time, she produced textile artwork inspired by local bird life. It was her love of birds that encouraged her to take up photography. Charmed by the iridescent plumage of the North American humming bird, she borrowed a friends camera and began photographing birds that frequented her garden. Later she returned to Australia to formally study photography at TAFE Queensland and graduated with the General Managers Acquisition Award for the East Coast of Queensland. Monique now invests her time capturing natures prized moments through photography.
