"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up" -Pablo Picasso
Born in Adelaide, South Australia. Art and Music are my life. I grew up with a burning passion for the Arts and Music. As years passed by this all seemed to fade in my pursuit of happiness and my purpose in life. Later in life I took the path as a Professional Photographer with my brother Shane Monopoli, owner and founder of nationwide "Exclusive Photography." This put me back in touch with my desire for 'Creativity' and I went on to entering my portraits yearly into the AIPP 'National Photographic Awards', and won several National Awards including a Gold, Silver Distinction and several Silver Awards. As a professional photographer I came in contact with many people. I love interacting with people and am rewarded by their response to my work. The creative quality of my photography would make other people happy. This was leading me into a new adventure next to photography. I wanted to express people’s feelings and emotions in drawing and painting. All that I have done throughout my life has always been about being creative and especially about being different than the next person. I believe life and all its successes are about pushing those boundaries and never holding back. I am excited about this journey in life and love the positive response to my art I am receiving. I have a love for people,life and happiness and I believe this is shown through my art. I am a young artist-ready to sell. My work is affordable and selling well. Art is the thing I do the best! I want to conclude with a quote by Isaac Newton... “If I have seen further than others it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.”
My art teacher Krista Hernach has inspired me with her enthusiasm and has made me the Artist I have always aspired to be by sharing her abundant knowledge in the field of art.
