Monica Stewart is a mixed media artist and painter. She received her B.F.A. from Murray State University and is currently pursuing her M.F.A. in Studio Art & Design at the University of Louisville. Her work in painting often explores the world of small objects, particularly from nature. When painted, these objects take on a form of suspended animation, which allows for speculation about their respective past lives, making them more like relics or artifacts.
