Over the past 15 years Monika Déry has experimented with fused glass, jewelry, and virtually every style of painting. She is an adjudicated member of the Alberta Society of Artists and is involved with numerous local and provincial arts organizations. Her style is constantly in flux — Déry complicates and questions tried and true methods through the use of experimental line work and application of color. Déry strives to bring a feeling of happiness and joy to the people who view her distinctive pieces, for she believes this to be the most important part of creating.
