Mónica Linares

Born and raised in Venezuela, Mónica was always surrounded by paint and brushes thanks to an artist father. With a background in advertising, she was permanently in contact with design, color and style, but it was not until 1999 when she started her formation as a painter at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Her painting evolution never stops as she continues learning and being inspired by wonderful artists. Mónica has a graphic style and many have called her a colorist. She aims for simplicity, interesting design, and strong brushwork.

Mónica currently shows her work at Anchorlight Raleigh, Violets Boutique in Cary, NC, the North Carolina Museum of Art Store, and our very own Mattie King Davis Art Gallery.

She also loves to offer opportunities to other artists wanting to have a structured time to paint, be part of a painting group or keep working on their formation as well-rounded artists. She lives with her husband and her kids in Apex, NC.

The Mattie King Davis Art Gallery, located in the historic Rustell House c.1732 on the Beaufort Historic Site, is the oldest art gallery in Carteret County. Linare’s work will be in the Mattie King Davis Art Gallery through August and September.
