ABOUT THE ARTIST
Monica Ek Castruita is a Sacramento, CA based artist, born and raised in Covina, CA. As an introvert who grew up in a family of extroverts, the visual arts appealed to her from a very young age. Drawing and painting were her favorite ways to express herself when words weren’t sufficient. Upon completion of her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from California State University, Fullerton, she began teaching fine art classes to children and adults. She has continued to create and teach art for the past 10 years. Monica believes knowledge in the arts and creative passion should be shared and invested in others.
