Monika Loevenmark

Monika Loevenmark has been painting scenes from nature since her teen years in Dorte Froslev’s (owner of the Brackendale Art Gallery) high school art classes. Following her passion for painting, she enrolled in the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at Emily Carr University. Art school has no interest in painting nature to look like nature, so she abandoned that and took up a keen interest in abstraction. Upon graduation, she felt unmotivated in her art practice, as one does when they have strayed from their path, and so she tried a new path: architecture. Trained now with a second bachelor’s degree in the fine art of architectural rendering both digitally and with paint or pen, Monika has the capacity to draw and paint many things that she is not interested in. In 2019 Monika moved to Squamish and devoted her time to watercolour – a new medium to her. She has so enjoyed taking her portable paints out to the highest peaks in the corridor and has honed her skills in painting both mountain scenes and the animals she adores.
