LOVE OF BEAUTY IS TASTE. 
THE CREATION OF BEAUTY IS ART. 
RALPH WALDO EMMERSON

I am Monique, a passionate designer, illustrator and educator hailing from Lynchburg, Virginia where I reside with my husband and daughter.

I have been an artist my entire life and remember fondly the Saturday mornings spent with my grandfather watercolor painting as a child. He and other creative family members helped instill in me a love for art and encouraged creativity. In college I studied graphic design and recently earned an MFA where I was able to pursue my interests in surface design and illustration. 


Inspiration

Nature is a huge inspiration and I absolutely love flowers, in fact, I dream of always having fresh flowers in my home. Butterflies, beetles, birds, berries and the like provide an endless supply of inspiration for shapes, patterns and color. I also geek out on great packaging and publication design, especially when specialty papers or printing methods are used. 


Achievements

My logo work has been published in LogoLounge 8 and in the Design: Logo book by Von Glitchka.

OtterBox commissioned me to create a line of iPhone cases for their Defender Series Studio Collection as well as the Eden floral pattern, which was used on a variety of cases including their Symmetry Series.

I've won numerous ADDY awards in both Pensacola and Phoenix for various branding projects I designed.
