I'm Monique and I'm an INTENTION-SEEKING



ART has the POWER to HOLD a space for us and EFFECT CHANGE in our lives.  During chaotic periods in my own life (and there has been many of them!) no matter how "cluttered" my head-space or how overwhelmed I feel - PARTICULAR paintings have given me cause to hit the PAUSE button -take a much needed TIME-OUT and spend a few minutes just BEING!

We CAN and SHOULD dream BIG and TAKE ACTION towards making our DREAMS COME TRUE


Art chooses US - and NOT the other way around

INTENTION is the mother of INVENTION

In dropping random "LOVE-BOMBS" on my VIP's!


FOUNDER: FluidArtMasterclass

I Love:

My Art Is:

POURED directly onto the substrate from CUPS, BOWLS and JUGS.  I RARELY use a BRUSH

 ALL about PATTERN and how we make sense of our world

CONNECTION to our universe, our planet and one another and our NEED for BELONGING.


Taking the FAMILIAR and placing it in an OUT-OF-CONTEXT environment

PLAYING with perceptions of TIME and SPACE



My Story:

For years, I stood on the side lines, never being fully “present”, yet desperately wanting to feel included and waiting for an invitation to the party.  I closely observed connections between people and the patterns they repeat, both healthy and unhealthy – as a detached bystander.   Most of my childhood was spent trying desperately to “fit in”, “belong” and connect, whilst my adult life has been turbulent and most notable for constant upheaval, separations and latterly chronic ill-health.   


In 2008, I took a sabbatical from my life in training & education and flew out to South America en-route to Hawaii. 3 days after arriving in Chile my friend and I narrowly escaped death, when the coach we were travelling in was involved in a head-on collision.  We were seated directly behind the driver of the coach who was killed instantly as was the driver of the other vehicle. 


The rest of the trip was dogged with back-to-back disease and catastrophe and although I will always treasure the time, I got to spend in Hawaii, by the time I returned to the UK I was physically, mentally and emotionally broken.

I didn’t work for a long time. At my lowest point, I signed up for an Adult Education painting class for just a few hours a week, a simple act which would change the course of my life completely.  A few months later I’d rented a small office as studio space and was researching ways to paint without using brushes, as on-going health issues still present challenges.


And NOW...?

That was over 9 years ago and today my art practice looks very different. My dedicated studio now spans 2 large rooms.   I've had endless practical and emotional support from family, close friends and CONNECTIONS my art has brought me.  I’m no “overnight sensation” and no single event has ever propelled me into the ranks of “superstar artist”, but slowly and steadily... I started getting HIGH PROFILE FEATURES, was invited to submit for JURIED EXHIBITIONS and CURATED ONLINE GALLERIES, received representation by PHYSICAL GALLERIES and have grown a loyal SOCIAL MEDIA following and CLIENT BASE who are a COMMUNITY  of wonderful people who totally get what I'm about! 


My work has led to  opportunities and experiences I only dreamt of not so long ago. I agree to as many as health will allow.  I’m proud to call myself a “professional artist” and during lockdown returned to my educator roots via the creation of FAM  the worlds largest online pouring course.  My students share with me on a regular basis the part I have played in their own TRANSFORMATIONS and each one gladdens my heart! 

I live in my head and constantly search for peace – not of mind, but from it.  My work is a visual representation of my inner world and often forces me out of my comfort zone.  I’m fascinated by patterns as they offer clues to an underlying order. They enable me to analyse a situation and understand what is at play. This helps me assess situations and make sense of things. I believe all of us respond to patterns in this way, to varying degrees. 


Unlocking their mysteries gives me an opportunity to manipulate them in order to achieve a desired effect.  

Through spontaneous reaction and technique, I can exert a degree of control and manipulation on paint which I pour from cups, jugs and bowls in order to create something intriguing and completely unique.  In those precious moments, I am FULLY present - I BELONG to MYSELF and I am FREE.


My Process

Starts with...


FLUID ART is now a global movement😍


Part of its current mass appeal lies in the fact PAINT POURING seemingly lacks rules or structure, the implication being for the novice or untrained artist it' s easy to learn.  In reality – it is – but it's also fiendishly difficult to MASTER


My work takes time, effort, technical expertise and lots of experiments (some of which are EPIC fails)!  I often pour in MULTIPLE LAYERS to create an IMPASTO effect, not usually associated with this style of painting.  As a result I am often told my work doesn't resemble that of other fluid artists?  


Once a backdrop or foundation has been established, up to 10 FURTHER LAYERS may be added at key moments during the drying process. This entails a degree of risk and uncertainty along with SKILL and INTENTION


My Vision:

To elevate my PRACTICE to the highest level of ARTISTIC EXPRESSION I am personally capable of and in turn INSPIRE others to do the same.

My Mission:

To SHARE transformational ART, KNOWLEDGE and LOVEBOMBS with like-minded INTENTION SEEKERS all over the world...whilst supporting causes I'm passionate about.
