Based in Edmonton Canada, Monika aka MK
is an artist at her core, a free spirit in her soul, and humanitarian in her blood.
She illustrates for a variety of projects from packages to books. Nothing can't be done!
She thrives in an environment that allows her to combine her passion while having the deep feeling of contributing to helping the planet earth become a better world.
Her artworks are done digitally using a unique technic that she developed and a mix of brushes on her Ipad and her Cintiq where she gets to digitally paint wherever she is. She gets inspired by her surrounding, animals, and nature. Her art often is recognized by her followers as linocut style, even though it has its unique brush strokes.
Traveling, nature, and animals are her sources of inspiration. 💚
MK has always been drawing and painting since she could hold a pen in her hands. The first subject she ever drew was a horse. She has always had a tremendous love and respect for nature and animals, and we can see it in her work.
She studied Graphic Design, 2D/3D animation, and also concept art, which brought her to work in the video game industry as a Lead Artist. She worked on international brands like MATTEL, Nancy Drew and Austin Powers as well as developers like In-Fusio, Majesco, etc.
However, it is not until later in her 30s that she really got engaged with her artistic skills and love for art. After living in Mexico for 2 years, she came back with a set of new skills, entrepreneurship, and a ton of ideas! She now owns a complete remote graphic design business where she specialises in packaging and illustration, as well as an online store where you can buy her art on different type of products.
Animal lover, she is excited for the future as technology is bringing solutions to the survival of humanity while being able to take care of the biodiversity, our animals, and the planet.
Also, she is a firm believer of #cryptocurrency and #NFTs and can't wait to see where this journey will bring the people surrounding her and herself. She has already sold her first Art NFT and plans on working on an art project NFT.
Technology, Humanity, and Passion are the key to the planet and her own success.
