Manon is an award-winning modern impressionist, born and raised in Berlin, Germany, who now resides in Southern Florida, which presents a cornucopia of inspiration for her. The effects of light on a subject and the feeling it evokes are of great importance to Manon as she puts down her impressions in interesting patterns, luminous color, and juicy brush strokes in her own distinct style.
Manon participates in invitational and juried nation-wide plein air events as well as in prestigious juried national shows. Her award-winning works are in galleries and private collections on three continents and have been included in publications such as American Art Collector, Plein Air Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine, and Fine Art Connoisseur. She has been awarded signature status with the American Society of Marine Artists as well as the National Oil and Acrylics Painters’ Society and has been selected as one of the few exhibiting out-of-state members of the distinguished California Art Club.
Manon feels strongly about passing on her knowledge in national and international workshops and retreats. She was on the faculty of Plein Air South, the leading plein air convention for the South East, five times in a row. Manon’s work is represented by Park Avenue Contemporary Art in Winter Park, FL, and Lost Art Gallery in St. Augustine, Fl.
Ultimately, Manon aims to communicate her joie de vivre through paintings that reflect the color, light, and joy Manon feels surrounded by and is ever so grateful for.
