--> Category: Monnin, Pascale 

Pascale Monnin not only paints magnificently, but also sculpts iron and works with several other Haitian artists in a live model studio she began in early 1999.
Monnin, Pascale

Pascale Monnin was born in Haiti in 1974, of Swiss parents. At the age of three Pascale moved with her mother to Yverdon, Switzerland. Although she grew up in Switzerland she is irrevocably Haitian, having maintained intimate ties with the island through annual summer trips back home. By the age of 13 Pascale was enrolled in art school learning to draw from live models. Fully entrenched in the art world throughout her teens she apprenticed and collaborates with the sculptor Ljuba Stoyanovic who taught her how to sculpt miniatures in stone.

She learned the art of etching on copper plates in Lausanne at the Atelier Aquaforte and by the time she was 18 she was teaching drawing to students in a private school, the Ecole de la Maison Rouge. At this same time she earned her Baccalauréat artistique at the Collège Voltaire in Geneva. After that Pascale engaged in numerous artistic activities: participating in a group show of copper etching; creating interior design for nightclubs; costume designing for Les Brandons d'Yverdon carnival for which she won first prize four years in a row; and restoring paintings and frames at Ramon Rivas's atelier in Lausanne.

In May 1994, the artist returned to Haiti to help her father run his well-established Galerie Monnin in Pétionville. The magical and mystical aspect of Haiti has a very strong influence on Pascale's work. She not only paints magnificently, but also sculpts iron and works with several other haitian artists in a live model studio she began in early 1999.
