Michelle Mongan

I am a San Francisco-based artist who creates figurative works on paper including drawings, paintings and printmaking.

My art is created at studios located in San Francisco, California, and Cienfuegos, Cuba, typically using live models or based on drawings created with live studio models.

The human body as a subject for inspiration and creativity resonates profoundly with me in that every day I must examine myself and face my own vulnerabilities. My work represents a practice of stripping away the masks and curtains that are easy to hide behind to know myself better and be comfortable in my own skin.
