Monica is a visual artist dedicated to exploring works on identity and self.

Her abstract paintings pull from her use of nature as a source of calm and inspiration. She uses alcohol ink and watercolor to create immersive paintings and moods that are a reflection of contemplative moments.

Her Asian American work uses various mediums to explore the nuanced concepts within identity. She finds inspiration in found objects and pulls from her own childhood stories and those of her fellow Asian Americans to inform her art.

She grew up in San Jose, California and studied Computer Science at UCLA. She has a professional background in software engineering but has made the leap into the art world. She hopes to provide introspection and calm to herself and to others through her work.
