Monica Maria Ramirez

Originally a native of Veracruz, Mexico, MONICA MARIA RAMIREZ's painting style is a dynamic and evolving blend of surrealism with figurative abstracts. Her primary inspiration is the human body, which she believes is the perfect expression of the soul within. She paints different emotional states in multiple layers using various medias, like oils and acrylic. Textures like gold and silver leaf, coffee grounds, plaster of paris, and others give her work additional depth and complexity.

Monica came to the United States in 1998 and began exhibiting with the Upper Valley Art League in McAllen, Texas. She received recognition as Artist of the Month for April in 2000.

Her work has been exhibited in several museums, art galleries, Universities, and cultural centers. She has exhibited in East Mexico, Tamaulipas, and Monterrey, Mexico. In the states she has exhibited in Texas in the Rio Grande Valley, San Antonio, and Austin as well as in Los Angeles, California, Phenix, Arizona and New York. She has a passion for performing live painting and her own poetry.

Ramirez is involved in several art groups and organizations. She has worked as a volunteer at the McAllen International Museum and the Donna Museum.
