Originally from a small town in Bavaria / Germany, Monika Meisl Müller studied Fine Arts / Art History and the English and American language and literature at Passau University.
During her studies she spent a year in Edinburgh / Scotland.
In the following years she had various teaching assignments for Art and English in and around Munich.
During a Sabbatical she took the chance to spend several months in New Zealand which initiated a breakthrough into painting.
What she says about her art:
"Painting is a special means of communication for me.
Each piece of work represents a definitely private expression of how I percept my world. I don´t want to copy nature. A camera does a perfect job of this.
Rather I am trying to visualize my "very own reality".
People often ask me about the meaning of my pictures. If I had words there wouldn´t be the urgency to express myself through colours and shapes.
My paintings have to speak for themselves and lead to a dialogue with its viewers and their own interpretations.
Only then is my work completed."
