The Lofts on Main, 922 Main Street #303
Monique Brideau is a painter in the Lofts on Main. Her abstract oil paintings are based on nature and landscape. As a lifelong resident of the Hudson Valley, Monique enjoys hiking and being in nature. She wants her work to suggest, if not directly, a love of environment and movement.
Monique is also currently engaged in creating collages from deconstructing her old work. These works include oil on primed paper, drawings and prints from her art school days. She uses leftover borders from the prints for adding watercolor, pencil, and marker drawings to be incorporated into the collages. Monique is passionate about this process because there is no waste.
Monique is a member of the Peekskill Artist Certification Committee. She is also the dedicated Artist Representative on the Peekskill BID Board of Directors. Monique received an MFA in Painting at Boston University.
Monique recently had solo shows at The Field Gallery, The Peekskill Coffee House and The Hendrick Hudson Free Library as well as participating in local group shows. Follow Monique on Facebook and Instagram @moniquebrideauart.
