Welcome

Monique Wales works primarily in relief and intaglio printmaking. Her artwork is largely nature-inspired, particularly by the magnificent mountain areas in and around Yosemite. Monique hopes to impart on her audience the importance of wild spaces and shine a light on their increasingly threatened inhabitants. She strives to bring into her work the feelings of peacefulness, serenity and wonder she experiences when witnessing the world outside our walls.
