Monica Véliz Henríquez studied advertising in Chile in the mid-nineties, but her real calling was the arts. While she was in College she took classes in glass mosaic, watercolor painting, gres ceramic and loom weaving to give birth to different types of artistic representations. She also studied short courses of arts at the Universidad Católica de Chile.
As an autodidact artist, Mónica has developed the technique of intertwined of linen and silk strips that can be found in her portfolio.
Monica enjoy playing with colors, shapes and different materials in order to produce pieces of art that evoke the sensations like serenity, joy and stillness.
From 1998 to 2002 Mónica resided in Austin, Texas, where she had the opportunity to get in touch with southern modernism and folk art. During that period, she became interested in developing pieces with meaning and historical perspective.
