BIOGRAPHY


Born in Poland in 1957 to actors’ family Monique decided to pursue art at the age of 14 when she painted her first oils. Still as a teenager, at 18, she left Poland on her own and moved to London, England. During the years 1980-1985 she lived in Amsterdam, Netherlands, where she had numerous one person and group shows in Amsterdam and Den Haag. Neo-expressionism was her dominant style of work at the time.

In 1985 she moved to United States and lived in Norfolk, Virginia, where she had one person show in 1986 in Gallery Panache. In 1987 she moved to Los Angeles, California. In 1988 she had a transcendental experience which prompted her work to evolve into non-objective and non- referential. Her work was labeled as neo-constructivist by L.A. based art critic Peter Frank. She had one person and group shows in L.A.

In 1992, in a result of another, yet more powerful spiritual experience, she moved to Maui, Hawaii for 2 years, where she also painted. She kept her art studio in L.A. to come back to it in 1995.

She moved to Reno, Nevada in 1996 and in 1997 closed her L.A. studio. Avid skier, she received a patent for ski and snowboarding invention in 2006.

In 2009 Monique moved to Anchorage, Alaska, where she painted several large canvasses. She came back to Reno in 2014.

During her artistic career in the years 1980-1988 and 1996-2004 Monique also collaborated on various artistic projects, among others acting, singing and music recording and completed two full-feature movie scripts.

She lives in Reno, Virginia Foothills, and works from the studio in her house. Her main interest and occupation is her work on non-objective paintings. Monique has a daughter and two grand daughters who live in Poland.

Monique Rebelle is also  an author of an Amazon bestseller "Transcendence Calling - The Power of Kundalini Rising and Spiritual Enlightenment" published in 2018. For more information about events connected with the content of the book visit www.moniquerebelle.com
