I Dream in Color: Monica Milton
Artist Reception - Thursday, May 19, 2022, 7 - 9 pm
Monica Milton is a self-taught artist who works primarily in acrylic paint on canvas. She began honing her artistic skills with graphite pencil and then graduated to using colored pencils to add a touch of color. Although she has always loved creating art, she did not begin painting until 2016 when she got out of her comfort zone and realized painting, though less controlled, can be a magical experience. She focuses on simplicity and that serves as a contrast to the multitude of vibrant colors that threads her work. She often focuses on women with dark complexions and uses various colors to highlight both their beauty and their power.
