Hey, I’m Monica

Me working at Noble Plateware

I was born in Bogota, Colombia, and came to New York to pursue a BFA in Studio Art at NYU. I came in as a painter and left as a sculptor with a newfound passion and interest in ceramics. After graduating, I worked at Noble Plateware, a boutique pottery studio in Gowanus. I was in charge of casting all the mugs and glazing most of their dinnerware. I had a great time listening to podcasts, the Brian Lehrer Show and all the Harry Potter books with the small team at the studio.

For the past year and half I’ve been working as a freelance graphic designer and also dabbled into starting my own little handmade pottery business.

When I’m not working I like to partner dance, eat cake and anything sweet, and watch any good show or movie in German. I thrive when I’m around people and movement, which you can see on my personal insta.

I look forward to getting more techy in this course and and apprehensive about the inevitable coding frustrations.

Ps. I’m working on moving my old WordPress website into my new website. In the meantime you can check my older artwork and writing, go here.

See you in class!
