Umbrellas Wading on Rathtrevor Beach - a west coast beach scene painted by MONK



MONK is a west coast Canadian artist with a primary studio on spectacular Rathtrevor Beach, located in Parksville, Vancouver Island, British Columbia and a Gallery/studio across from the Beach Club in central Parksville.

MONK’s energy, creativity, joy and reverence for all of creation shine through in the exquisite use of colour, detail and depth. The three-dimensional sculptural quality of the work adds drama and a sense that you could step right into each painting; walking through the old growth forest, exploring the garden paths, feeling the texture of the totems.

MONK is frequently found painting out on Rathtrevor Beach, or at Monk Art Gallery and Studio in downtown Parksville. People often seek MONK out to work on collaborative pieces and add their brush strokes and signatures to a truly original work of art.

MONK’s oil, acrylic, watercolour, and sculptural paintings, as well as and hand-embellished giclĂ©e prints are seen in galleries, homes and corporate spaces throughout Canada and world-wide. Art can be purchased online through the Art Sales page.
