About Monica Loos

I paint and design in my tiny home-based studio in San Francisco. Mostly self-taught, my style is equal parts classic, understated and whimsical. I am inspired by food, nature and man-made tools. My approach is a bit methodical. It’s in my nature, but I’m working on that… I transitioned from the world of telecommunications and logistics to running my own creative business ten years ago. Very different places! My messy hair and paint-laden hands have been very happy.

Thank you so much Monica for taking the time to like and comment on my Tote entry "Hi." I think what you wrote is the ultimate complement and I do really appreciate it. I like both of your entries in the Heart of SF challenge as they seem to reflect a clean and uncomplicated style. I look forward to seeing more of your paintings. best of luck to you!
