Monique Lovering Studio

On this site you will discover my work and practice as an Artist. Painting, collage and drawings. The materials used are varied and the mark making is very much an expression of my inner world to the outer world. My work is about the conversation between the viewer and myself. Exploring the connection from one inner world to another, we are all connected through symbol and meaning.
