Monica Morrill was born on Southern Vancouver Island where she grew up exploring the beaches, forests and mountains of the west coast. She moved off the island to complete a university degree and spent the following years living in various regions across Canada, an experience which has greatly influenced her work.
A self-taught artist, Monica uses many layers of acrylic paints on canvas to depict colourful images of the Canadian landscape with a focus on water and fantastic skies. She aspires to capture a sense of peace and tranquility and to emphasize the supernatural aspects of the world around us that are sometimes overlooked. Monica currently lives on Vancouver Island with her family.
