"Art is nourishment for your soul. It summons a language you didn't know you could speak." -Monica Lee
" I want to introduce my viewer to a vocabulary they are vaguely familiar with, one that contains a whisper of mystery, sensuality, femininity, elegance and strength. When I paint, I move between what I see, what looks harmonious and what I feel. This is where the choices take place. Imagery can summon emotions before words are formed around them and I want people to experience that."
