As an artist and designer what most informs my work is the concept of taking something flat and making it into something round. With clothing I sculpt fabric into three dimensional shapes that conform to the body. With drawing and painting I try to create a three-dimensional space on a flat surface with the use of tonality, proximity, scale, balance, contrast and juxtaposition. My love of color is a continual inspiration for creating various moods, whether vibrant or subtle, always seeking to make the flat surface achieve depth. My goal is to bring beauty and thoughtfulness to the world.. See also: https://www.moniquerobidoux.com
