I was born in the city of Ruse, on the bank of the river Danube, situated in North-Eastern Bulgaria. Since my childhood I was fascinated with fine art. My parents, Marko and Vasilka, are artists too. They inspired my interest, helped me with my works, encouraged me with good advices.

"Mona Moneva is a genuine artist set apart from the superficial art, hype and business of the art-marketing machine. There is often a delicate surface of realism rendered with compassion. Indeed, some of her work is ‘realistic’, some of it ‘surrealistic’ and yet others what I would call ‘transpersonal’. Her transpersonal paintings often reveal something just underneath this quaint realism. There are the rumblings of mystery; deep secrets of a transpersonal consciousness just about to break through to illumination. I find Mona’s work a promising light on the path of vision. Her feminine touch to the surface of her paintings is an amazing, subtle and sometimes sexy detour that takes one beyond gender and into the broad and enlightening vistas of Truth and Beauty."

"Mona's paintings are full of poetry. It is, for me, the main quality of an art work: poetry give birth to emotions and make us dream.That is what each painting by Mona is: the begin of a dream where we can make a promenade."

Jose Roosevelt, visionary artist
