Monique Sullivan

Monique Sullivan

Born: 1980

Hometown: San Antonio

Based in: San Antonio

Monique Sullivan earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art with a concentration in Photography from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Her work is inspired by her dreams, spirituality and Latina heritage. Her range of artworks includes photography, painting, ceramics, printmaking, installation and video. Monique is a Mom-trepreneur who participated in several Artist-In-Residence opportunities and works as a Creative Art Director. She competes throughout the year to local, state and worldwide exhibitions. Her photography has been displayed at galleries for international events such as Paris Photo, Germany’s Photoszene and this year’s Texas Hill Country Fotoseptiembre festival. She has been published in numerous magazines, books and calendars for her work. She has earned many recognition awards for visual arts and even featured in Polaroid Magazine. She is a life member of the UTSA Alumni Association, San Antonio Art League and the Greater San Antonio Camera Club. Her historic district studios are located at her 1910 Craftsman three story home. She lives with her husband and two children.

Instant photography captures the nostalgia of idealism and the magic of serendipity. It always feels like I am in a time machine that is propelling me into the future of my memories. The digital age and analog film are colliding to create a new interaction in the conversation of contemporary photography. With innovative tools, the enchantment of instant film is bursting with new flavors, creativity and excitement. Within this new technology lives the mutation of fine art and the adventurous spirit of Americana. I explore these peculiarities with an assortment of cameras, mediums and techniques.
