I'm Monica Saga, an illustrator living in the countryside, in southern part of Norway.I received my BA (Hons) in Visual Communication from University of Central England, Birmingham. Life led me to the IT industry, where I worked several years, before my husband and I decided to follow a life long dream of living closer to nature. My passion has always been drawing, and these changes in my life also presented me the opportunity to live that passion.
My inspiration comes from a fascination with everything beautiful, fashion, people, and flowers, and I'm sort of a 'crazy dog lady', and are rather obsessed with my two bulldogs Dexter & Franco. They are an endless source of inspiration for me, along with the woodland critters and country animals living in the forest behind our little house.
I mostly work with watercolour and ink, sometimes gouache, but i have fun experimenting with other mediums, developing my work further.
