Monique Carr is a contemporary impressionist painter. After growing up in Montreal, Canada and spending 10 years in the Cayman Islands, Monique
and her husband made East Tennessee home in 1999. Monique worked as a graphic artist for over 20 years prior to becoming a full-time fine artist. Ever
evaluating and evolving her style, Monique has continued throughout her professional career to study under many well-known artists, which has
influenced her development and success. The style that emerges in Monique’s work bursts with energy as she combines expressive colors
and intriguing textures. Her imaginative and abstract landscapes can be described Turneresque. Her florals are fun and full of energy.
“My intent is to transform a common scene into something new and stunning that will leave the viewer with feelings of surprise and joy.”
“My contemporary landscapes are a fusion of experience, experiment and emotion. Instead of painting what I see with my eyes, I want to depict my own
interpretation of a scene with my soul. I want to capture the mystery and the beauty of nature. Simultaneously, I’m thinking about composition, harmony,
colors, movement, and texture. Atmospheric effects are another wonderful way to create a sense of drama with calm and mystery, which appeals to me.
