Michelle Mongan

Mongan is a San Francisco-based figurative artist whose work includes printmaking, paintings, and drawings. Her figures have been described by Sasha Chebil of The Daily Californian as “twisted,” "delicate," falling "in undefined lines" and having "limbs that fade into nothingness.” The seeds for Mongan’s artistic future were planted in college. While majoring in accounting, she took a drawing class and found the freedom and creativity that drawing provided to be a liberating gift from the analytical and precise nature of the accounting program. In 2012, Mongan ended a successful accounting career. She started what she describes as being a more soul enriched life. She now had the time and space to included art, travel and volunteerism. After traveling to Cuba in 2013 and 2014 and visiting the Sociedad Gráfica de Cienfuegos, in 2015 Mongan began studying printmaking one-on-one under the direction of Cuban artist Rafael Cáceres, one of the Founders and the Director of the Sociedad Gráfica. She is incredibly honored to work directly with Cuban artists Cáceres, Alexander Cárdenas and Manuel Quesada
