Born 1958 and living in Ski 25 km south of Oslo, where I have my studio.
From web text: "Mona is an artist working with paintings. For a number of years she has worked with the water-colour technique, which is very demanding, since the traces you put on the paper stays forever. The colours are overlapping each other, and this gives the fascinating colour tones that can be achieved only by this technique.
People and architecture Mona often works with different series and themes. People, architecture and places are important elements in her paintings. Places where people meet, communicates, where they wait or pass by each other. All is kept in a picturesque landscape, figurative but still tending towards a strictly controlled and geometric expression."
