Monica van Rijn,

artist out of the box.

Painting is a journey through new territory; it is the same as an exploration of the psyche or tracing a philosophical concept.

Monica’s Dutch family emigrated to America when she was one year old. Years later her inquisitive nature took her on a journey forward, around and back to her roots. Along the way she acquired a taste for the exotic and the erotic which found their way into her paintings and hidden objects.
