Monique Fillion lives and works in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Following high school, she graduated with a BFA from the University of Manitoba. Her interdisciplinary art practice includes painting, illustration, and photography.
Fillion’s abstract paintings reflect her creative process and interest in ‘the dichotomies often found between the conscious and the unconscious’. Music, colour, and texture also inform her paintings. Thin layers of paint are applied to each canvas with sweeping intent, each brush stroke informing the next, allowing the image to take shape organically.
