Mona Lerch is a self-taught contemporary visual artist currently residing in Brno, Czech Republic.
Mona began her art journey as an abstract oil painter; however, her creative passions and love for experimentation led her into watercolor botanical illustration and portraits, linocut prints, collages and recently also acrylics. She uses both life and work experiences to give shape to unique pieces of artwork that are often characterized by elaborate structure and layers.
Being a nature lover and a passionate advocate of ecological lifestyle, she digs deep into her fantasy to materialize her inner world on canvas. Her mission is to create a narrative embodying the beauty we have around us that we forget to see and break the boundaries between the body and mind. Originally a dancer, dance teacher and choreographer, her art speaks of movement and the importance of being present in every moment of our lives. In her latest works, she focuses on feminine energies. She describes this change in her subject matter as a part of her spiritual awakening and embracing womanhood after years of building her career in internal security, a predominantly male discipline.
Mona believes that art has healing powers as it helped her overcome postpartum trauma accompanied by depression and anxiety. She’s passionate about sharing her journey, hoping to inspire other women artists to step outside their comfort zone and transform their dreams into reality.
Mona is a member of several art directories and communities – All SHE Makes, Visionary Art Collective, Creative Lady Directory, Where Are The Women Artists and Art Queens Society. She’s shown her work online with Women Artist Born Global Network, The Unicorn Factory, Visionary Art Collective, Brandi Hofer Art Gallery, The Purposeful Mayo and The Curator’s Salon.
She is also the founder of two global platforms which highlight women in the arts - Art Mums United and Women United ART MOVEMENT, and an international contemporary art contest Women United ART PRIZE.
