Artist Bio - Monika Alston

Monika Alston is an emerging Melbourne based abstract acrylic artist.  Born in 1958, she majored in Art Theory - Bachelor of Arts at La Trobe University.  Monika’s artistic awakening began later in life when faced with blank walls in a new residence giving her the inspiration to create colour on canvas.   She commenced art classes, which created a space for releasing her passion for paint and colour.  Monika’s blank canvases become the receptors of colour, emotion and self-exploration.  Monika’s art is an expression self characterised by combining bold and subtle colour variations and textures that are inspired by her connection with nature, water, food and music.
