I enjoy painting all subject matters and currently works principally in watercolor. I admire the effect and mystery of the watercolor medium and I enjoy both my studio work and working in plein air. Often in my paintings you will see the subject from a unique perspective and with an interesting play of light upon it. I’m drawn to paint subjects that are in my environment, so I often paint rural and village scenes in the Catskill mountains and urban scenes in NYC.

Directions to Studio: From Kingston, drive west on Route 28. On Rt 28, just past the town of Pine Hill, you’ll go up a steep hill. When you get to the top of the hill make a right turn onto Clubhouse Drive (which is opposite the large sign for Belleayre Ski mountain). Follow Clubhouse Dr. around a large building and, when you come to the end, make a left onto Seneca Lane. Shortly thereafter at the dead end sign make a soft right onto Roaring Brook. The first road on your right will be Mohegan Trail Rd. My studio is towards the end at 605 Mohegan Trail Rd. Looks for my sign “Monka Hill Studio”. There is parking just past my driveway. It’s best to park at the top and walk down as the driveway is steep.
