About Me


Monica Marquez Gatica

:: Artist Statement ::

I am an artist, a woman, an immigrant creative. Born in Jerez, Spain and living in Aurora, Colorado, I am a fine art oil and mixed media painter that is internally drawn to peaceful places. My artwork captures a soul and sense of calm serenity, no matter the subject matter. My inspiration comes from the details of life around me- to use colors to symbolize a variety of emotions, and truths. As a result, each piece has a mix of realistic representational style, blurred with imagery and my imagination through embellished pouring. I pay particular attention to light and composition to tie together the subject and its environment as a whole. 

Art truly impacts life in a positive way as people still desire the beauty of art in their lives. As such, no bad event or loss should dull the innate longing for that which is beautiful. In these times of uncertainty and anxiety, I hope my art brings about calmness that inspires tranquility.  As I'm immersed in the process of making something concrete – a universal connection of passion, serenity, and our union with nature are the underlying rhythms of my practice. 

:: Artist Biography ::

Monica is a fine art painter, born in Jerez, an Andalusian town in Southern Spain, and residing in Aurora Colorado since 2005. With a background in interior and exterior design, Monica developed her fine art painting skills over years of practice and self-study. Her signature style of embellished painting combines acrylic pouring techniques and adds very specific details with traditional oils later. Monica's consistent theme remains fixed; to use colors to symbolize a variety of emotions, and truths to bring about calmness that inspires tranquility. Through colors and multiple layers she seeks clarity, contrasts, insinuations and environments to build up, and not to tear down. Her varied styles and exploration of painting techniques create vivid paintings that takes you into a visual place, where you get lost in colors and movement. 

Monica comes from a family of artists (musicians, dancers, & painters) and in 2013 a family member asked if she could "paint something" from Spain (typical wine glasses or Flamenco dancers), for his new restaurant. That spark launched new path as an artist. After those initial paintings she kept studying, learning, and painting for several more years. In 2016, she decided to make fine art a new career, dedicating long hours in the studio, and continuously striving to improve her quality & technique. That tenant remains true even to this day. In 2018, Monica was accepted as an Oil Painters of America – Associate Member. She also was a national finalist for the Bombay Sapphire Artisan services and invited to SCOPE Miami Beach in December. Monica expresses the beautiful detailed world around us, and transforms those details that many times we forget to observe.
