Multi-talented artist, Monica C. Webster, is also a pianist and singer, a gardener, a chef of international cuisine and a writer. By day she is an elementary/ middle school
teacher, by night she creates wonderful works of art. She depicts nature in a wide variety of styles from realism in her pet portraits to black and white graphic imagery. She is madly passionate about her puppies, a lover of animals and The Natural World.

How do animals inspire your artwork?

Animals are one of my main sources of creative inspiration. Elegance, power, “etherealism,” majesty, grace, strength, beauty… just a few of the many incredible qualities that are found in the animal kingdom; one of the things that fascinates me is how often qualities which seem to contradict each other exist in the same sphere. The powerful beat of a heron’s wings, for example, juxtaposed against the delicate fragility of each individual feather. This and other marvelous feats of physical and visual engineering in the animal kingdom inspire feelings of awe and wonder which in turn influences my art.

How do you create your art?

I use a variety of mediums when creating art. Portrait paintings are created in soft pastel, while portrait drawings are created with pencil, charcoal, conte, pastel, ink and sometimes a combination. I also use acrylic paint, watercolours and unconventional mediums such as aluminum foil, tissue paper, printed pages etc.

 

Tell us about your pets?

Our family includes three canine members; two Tibetan Spaniels and a Pyrenean Mastiff. Keani Evening Song is our sable nine-year-old “Tibbie.” He always has a wide-eyed “anxious” expression, is a bit prissy, loves giving hugs and can smother you (literally) with kisses. Khydn Treasured Moments is our parti-coloured (red and white) two-year-old Tibbie. He is precocious, mischievous, and exuberant, and has an effervescently joyful outlook. Both Keani and Khydn have a black mask.

Eoberon Céfiro Enchanting, the Pyrenean Mastiff, is still a puppy, but he’s about 130 lbs. He’s a gray and white gentle giant. He still has that “puppy exuberance” and, of course, has no idea of how large he is.

How long have you been creating art?

I have been creating art since toddler-hood. My earliest framed work is a daisy drawn in pen when I was three that has resided in my parents’ main-floor bathroom for years. Throughout the continued development and evolution of my work over the years, one thing has remained constant; animals continue to take centre (center) stage.
