Monica's paintings represent a carnival of color, which invites to the public to see beyond and understand how beautiful our Latino American Culture is. The color in her work is well known; she shows love for life and nature that comes from Colombian cultural wealth. She is figurative artist, but with great expressionist-surrealist influence. Some of her paintings show a festival of trees in which human feelings are reflected through their branches that touch and cares each other. The imagination and the philosophy of love are reflected in the faces and bodies, creating and fantasy space, dramatic, spiritual dance of love between soul mates.
