Born and raised in Chicago’s Lincoln Park, Monica Postell now lives and works near the beach overlooking the intercoastal waterway in Delray Beach Florida.

Early art training included a summer class in clay sculpting at the Art Institute of Chicago, during which the then grammar school student produced three seminal works: A giraffe perhaps from the Jurassic period, a Madonna that closely resembled England’s Queen Victoria, and a ballerina wearing a tutu who, unable to stand ‘en pointe,’ instead sits in a faintly yogic cross-legged pose.

Largely self-trained, the artist works in any media that strikes her fancy – currently, watercolor, oil, and pastel. She paints landscapes of places she travels, fruit and floral still lives, and portraits.
