M O N I Q U E C O R R E Y
I have a painting in my room that inspires me every time I feel stuck to keep going. It's a picture of a grenade - maybe not what you were imagining.. but that's what I love about art. It means and feels something different to each person that sees it. I hope my art can tell those stories for you.
My home is Australia but I'm currently living in London. Someone once described my paintings as an organised mess because the proportions are accurate but the insides are messy. I use oil & acrylic on canvas and paint life as I see it. I take a limited number of commissions - email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer just after my 27th Birthday in 2019. I had 6 months of Chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and found out I have the BRCA1 gene mutation. Cancers not the whole part of my story, but it is a big part of my journey to art. In this video I talk about why art is important to me.
