Stories from the Studio: Monique Turczynski

This week we caught up with Southern Highlands based artist Monique Turczynski! Monique has always felt a strong affinity with the creative arts and grew up spending every spare moment writing music, singing, acting and of course, creating visual art. Despite its spontaneous nature and abstract style, she sees shapes and colours in fluid art that, to her, are reminiscent of the ocean, rock pools and galaxies. “I hope my work inspires the same sense of tranquillity, imagination and joy that can be found in our beautiful, natural world”.

Monique’s works will be on display this June long weekend as part of The Pop-up Project. The Pop-Up Project was created in 2021 when a group of artists in the beautiful Southern Highlands in NSW wanted to have more opportunities to open their studio doors. They are dedicated to promoting artists’ work and increasing visibility, helping artists reach new audiences and opening doors to exciting opportunities! With workshops, masterclasses, and mentorship programs in the pipeline, they re committed to growth and providing resources like studio space and opportunities for development

You can see Moniques works on display at Bowral Art Gallery Workshop 1, 10 am – 4  pm, June 10/11 & 12 along side other artists… Andrea Hamann, Jeanette Prout, Loraine Coles, Styro Pyrography, Susan Landau, Turned Around.
