Monica Renaud was born in Sydney in 1974 and raised in the inner southwestern suburb of Earlwood.  She now lives & works from her Cronulla home studio on Sydney’s southern beaches, with her husband and two school -aged sons.


Her diverse and evolving practice currently includes photomontage, text-based works and small sculpture.
