Monica was always fascinated by colors. This passion turned out to be an important way of expression to her. She started using it to enter a world of fantasy, free of borders and free of pressure. Painting gives freedom to one´s emotions. Her paintings speak a language of her own, spontaneous, careless, irreverent, where layers overlap, reveal, hide. They create depth, shape, dimensions, texture. She splits her time between Germany and Brazil, and has lived in England for some time in the past, she weaves in her works the impressions she has absorbed from these countries. Her present spatial mobility also gives rise to an uneasiness in her which is revealed in her last work.
