An artist’s work is a canvas of their life. And Mona’s has been filled with rich and vibrant colors, varied depths, bold and striking lines, sensuous foreplay of light and shadows, subtle details, and reflections that create lasting impressions. Mona’s tryst with art began in India – absorbing from the larger than life culture, and taking inspiration from the big colors and varied imagery. Her travels around the world and a Europe sojourn have only enhanced her work adding new dimensions to an already sumptuous portfolio. Her work has the unique ability to capture a mind, sometimes with simplicity and others with complexity but almost always with intriguing abstractness. She believes her journey has just begun yet she has many awards and accolades that say otherwise. Through her work Mona truly imbibes the words of George Bernard Shaw, “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” Mona makes Boston her home and the world her canvas.
She has won several awards for her work and her work has been featured in various newspaper publications and interviewed on ABC’s television show “Chronicle”.
What moves me to paint is an emotion, vibe, a thought process or visual appeal. In the process of painting, I take the subject apart, analyze and process it. I pick parts that fascinate me and place them to make the composition work. At the same time I am not really thinking of my moves ahead of time. I let the energy flow in my work and let it take a path that is unknown and uncharted. I like to see what adventure the painting I am working on is going to take me to.
