A little bit about Monie Segale....
I’ve been drawing and painting as long as I can remember. I’ve always been drawn to vintage Raggedy Ann books and other fairytale/children’s books for the wonderful stories and illustrations and I’ve been drawing my own interpretations of them since I was able to color! All through my education I choose as many art classes as possible and even took some art classes in college.
Being a single mom my art was put on back burner until kids were out of high school and then boom I was off with paint and brushes in hand! My earliest canvases were whatever I could find - walls and stones! So in the nineties I was painting rocks, flower pots and whatever else came my way. Then murals became my passion and I was painting murals everywhere in the South Bay, East bay and North Bay of California including model homes. I’ve participated in the Union Street Fair in San Francisco for many years, as well as local art and craft shows
In the last few years I’ve been privileged to be an artist at Halloween and Vine in Petaluma, California twice. Also at Tinsel and Treasures in Danville, California . This year will be my third time as an artist at Hallowbaloo in Seattle, Wa. And my first year as an artist at A Bewitching Fete in Pleasanton, California. Currently I’m living in the quaint historic town of Angels Camp, California the home of the "jumping frog jubilee".
