Monica Barrera (b. 1966, San Francisco, CA) joined the Creativity Explored studio in 2013. Barrera is known for experimenting with a variety of media and techniques to create her prefered subject matter: landscapes.
Barrera draws and paints landscapes from her personal experiences and memories. Often composing mulitple landscape scenes into one artwork, Barrera plays with the perspective and proportion of fragmented memories.
Since joining the Creativity Explored studio, her style has become more loose and gestural. Barrera plays different techniques like scratching, in a variety of media on paper, canvas, masonite, and most recently plywood.
