SIAG November Artist of the Month Monique Boissier-Sporn

Monique grew up in France and had no significant art instruction throughout her educational years. She moved to Northern Virginia and retired from careers in academia and the Foreign Service.

Out of curiosity and a need for relaxation, Monique began taking a variety of art
classes. This artistic discovery began with throwing pottery on the wheel and building clay sculpture. Soon she added charcoal portraiture and finally watercolor to her artistic skills. She found watercolor to be her ‘niche.’

She has studied under several excellent watercolorists including Sally Olson, Christine Lashley, and Catherine Hillis. After moving to Seabrook Island, Monique began painting in oil and studying with Gary Kunkelman and Patricia Huff.

Currently, she paints both watercolor and oil.

A reception will be held for Monique on Wednesday, November 2, from 4:30 pm-6:00 pm at The Lake House. Please come to the reception to view the beautiful art Monique offers.
