Monica Linville has been a working studio artist for over 30 years. She is a self taught painter, working professionally since 1977.
Much of her adult life has been spent living close to nature; a mountain top in Puerto Rico’s rain forest and currently in the forests surrounding Boone, NC. Her work remains infused by the colors, textures and light of the natural environment.
Over 20 of those years were spent in the Puerto Rican rain forest on top of a little mountain in the Caribbean where her studio was located. She relocated to the high country of North Carolina in 2019. She is an award winning artist, with work now in collections around the US and internationally.
The artist has been teaching watercolor and creative mixed media since the 90’s. She taught watercolor at the Museum of Art in San Juan, Puerto Rico (El Museo de Arte San Juan) and creative mixed media at both the Students’ Art League in Old San Juan (La liga de estudiantes artes) and her studio in Puerto Rico’s eastern mountains. She also taught watercolor workshops to convention groups coming to the island as well as worked with artists privately with their portfolio development. While filming on the island, actress Jane Seymour sought her out for private watercolor instruction.
