CREATIVE DIRECTOR & CEO
MONA LERCH is a contemporary mixed media visual artist and entrepreneur residing in Brno, Czech Republic.
After graduating with MSc in Criminology from London Metropolitan University, she pursued her career in internal security specializing in counterterrorism and hybrid threats while continuing with her creative passion – dancing, teaching and choreographing for one of the most prestigious dance studios in Prague, Czech Republic.
Her health condition and the complicated birth of her son put a halt on dancing after almost 20 years of experience, and she dedicated her time to painting and learning more about the art world while on maternity leave. Realizing that years spent in a predominantly male field (and once a dream career) didn’t fulfil her creative needs, she took the leap of faith and transitioned into a full-time artist.
In 2020, she also began working towards creating a safe space for women artists to empower them in their journeys and increase their visibility through various art opportunities. Amid the world pandemic, she launched an international online platform Art Mums United dedicated to supporting other artist mothers and caregivers, and later, Women United ART MOVEMENT.
In addition to organizing solo and group exhibits, Mona also coaches artists through her monthly membership, 1:1 sessions and online programs. She is the host of Women United ART PODCAST and Editor In Chief of Women United ART MAGAZINE, a quarterly publication that highlights extraordinary artists, inspiring industry leaders and remarkable art organizations.
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 internationally with Women Artist Born Global Network, The Unicorn Factory, Visionary Art Collective, Brandi Hofer Art Gallery, The Purposeful Mayo, The Curator’s Salon and Deep Space Gallery.
