Monique Kimberly Sugar is born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She always loved to express herself through drawing and painting, since she can remember, she had not known a time where she wasn't passionate about art, almost like her obsession with Star Wars.
In 2005, she began to work with a Fine Arts Studio for Children while working on her Associate's Degree in Fine Arts and Early Childhood Development. When she finally graduated in 2009 from College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, California, she was accepted to Laguna College of Art and Design where she attended 2 years. Her major was Fine Arts with a minor in Illustration.
She became an Art School Drop Out. Due to financial reasons, she could no longer attend Art College. She did not give up! She went back to teaching art to children while continuing to develop her artistic skills. Determined to continue her career as a working Artist she began to search out commissions, to keep her creating, murals and in July of 2015, she funded and organized her first Solo Art show in Downtown Los Angeles.
Currently, she is the Lead Associate/ Curator of Casita del Pueblo in Whittier, California and Assistant to Yolanda Garcia. Organizing Art Shows for local Artists, Cultural and Artistic Festivals keeps her active in the Contemporary Art World and she is still creating.
