Hi! 👋 I'm Monica and I'm the face and hands behind MonicagonzalezArt.
I'm a professional independent Artist & Illustrator based in Sydney.
Although I live down under I'm Spanish! so we can also communicate in Spanish if English doesn't work for you!
I manage everything at MonicagonzalezArt, yep, all by myself! from drawing to answering your questions and everything you can imagine behind a small business.
My restless mind got me into Art since I was able to hold a pencil.
Since then I have been always involved in creative enviroments and practices, from traditional techniques to digital art.
I have coursed professional art studies during my entire academic life and obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Fine/Visual Arts with honours.
I still like to continually improve my skills and learn new things everyday to make sure my work is the best it can be.
I draw in a full time basis and I absolutely adore my job!
I've done commissioned pieces of all kinds, from portraits to landscapes, pets, wedding stationery, poster designs, tattoos, illustrations for other brands... nothing is too big or too small and I'm always open to hear your ideas.
I feel inspired by love, memories and everyday life. I found a passion in creating one of a kind pieces that hold special moments of our lives and our loved ones.
The lines knocked on my door one day and since then we are inseparable!
Hopefully I can create something you love ♥
Behind the scenes
How do I create my pieces? How are they hand drawn and digital at the same time?
Well, I promise it's all indeed, hand drawn, line by line!
I use an iPad Pro along with an Apple pencil that allows me to draw through the screen just like if I were using traditional pen and paper.
The pencil is a professional drawing tool that even has sensors to measure the pressure exerted by the user in both the axial and radial directions.
This sounds very technical but it basically means the technology behind this allows the stylus to take very precise measurements of pressure and other parameters just like if you were drawing traditionally.
Everything is supported by a professional drawing software to ensure I deliver you with the best quality.
Receiving your files in a digital format will make them timeless and very versatile.
They will last you for a lifetime and you will always be able to use your illustration in different ways over the years, so it can grow with you and adapt to the new chapters of your life.
