Curriculum Vitae

A lifelong artist, Monica?s work began selling in 1994. After many years of not exhibiting, she is re-emerging on the local art scene. Already, Gallery Directors from NY to FL are saying:

"...all of the work exhibits strength in the use of form, color and metaphor to convey ideology and emotion, resulting in work that is intellectually captivating and aesthetically balanced".

"...Monica Giglio has the canny ability to come up with just the right amount of variation in her "Tree" series to keep audiences enthralled. Her images evoke a mix of poetic mood and intense exuberance, suggesting at once the beauty of nature and the imagery of "Pop Art".

"...The way Monica digitally manipulates the (colors in) trees and the landscape is especially interesting. Her trees seem to transform into colorful matrixes..."
