Monica Bastawros is 24 years old and an engineering manager by occupation. She started drawing and painting religious art 8 years ago in high school. A lot of her work focuses on emotions of Christ and those surrounding him. She tries to take all of the emotions she has while creating a piece and puts it into her art. Some paintings, like the one she is donating today, has a modern twist to it with a lot of colors to keep the audience engaged. The color scheme tells a story within itself.
