Monique Brideau: Painting and Collage
May 5 - May 31
Monique Brideau is Peekskill Coffee’s artist for month of May. Monique’s recent paintings and collages are on display throughout the store. Her abstract oil paintings are based on nature and landscape. As a lifelong resident of the Hudson Valley, Monique enjoys hiking and being in nature. She wants her work to suggest, if not directly, a love of environment and movement.
Monique’s collages are created from deconstructing her old work. These works include oil on primed paper, drawings and prints from her art school days. She uses leftover borders from the prints for adding watercolor, pencil, and marker drawings to be incorporated into the collages. Monique is passionate about this process because there is no waste.
Monique is a member of the Peekskill Artist Certification Committee. She is also the dedicated Artist Representative on the Peekskill BID Board of Directors. Monique received an MFA in Painting at Boston University.
