Monica has produced installation work and photobooks that have been exhibited and collected within the UK and internationally.

She is currently promoting her handcrafted limited edition photobook on Mexico. 'Your Photographs Could Be Used By Drug Dealers'.

A former charity campaigner, she currently works as a documentary photographer for independent research projects and NGOs in England and abroad. She focuses on societies in turmoil and transition in the midst of a struggle to change.

One of the first members of the art activist network at Autograph Gallery, she also works as an independent curator; bringing together different points of view on a single issue.
