Monique is a professional artist who resides on the magnificent Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. She lives with her family and Red Dog on a rural property, walking distance from beautiful beaches where nature's inspiration awaits her everyday.  In the Summer holiday season, magnificent beaches all over the peninsula offer stimulating new subject matter; beach-goers with their colourful  paraphernalia and vibrant yachts racing on the bay.
