"I am an installation and video artist who has taught in many post secondary institutions in the New York City area. Currently, I teach graphic design within the City University of New York system, specifically at Hunter College and Borough of Manhattan Community College. The classes I teach focus on the elements of design using the Adobe creative suite including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Dreamweaver. I also have taught at Parsons the New School for Design here I taught a time-based media class that focused on the concept of time through video using Premier Pro, InDesign and non digital time based art forms such as performance art and public interventions. Prior to teaching at Parsons I was teaching digital art in Long Island at Adelphi University here students learned basics of Photoshop and Illustrator while looking at contemporary digital art practices including issues such as copyright and appropriation in the digital age. In 1999 I was fortunate enough to teach a sculpture workshop at the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistan.
Within my art practice I engage in photography, video, and installation to create multi-media narratives about migration, journeys, culture and nationalism. I received an MFA from Parsons the New School for Design in 2010 and graduated with a BFA in fine art from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1998. I have exhibited my work extensively since graduating from my BFA. I have exhibited throughout Canada, New York and in New Delhi. Recently I was awarded a BRIC Media Arts (a Brooklyn based non profit arts organization) fellowship and I received a PSC CUNY Adjunct Professional Development grant, which enabled me to travel to Karachi, Pakistan to begin a short documentary on the city.
My subjects include: Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premier Pro, Adobe After Affects, Microsoft Word, and PowerPoint,
I am a unique tutor because not only do I teach art, but I am also a practicing artist. I have skills in Graphic Design, Video art and editing, painting/color theory, and sculpture
I have been teaching at the college level in NYC for 5 years and I have a 10 year+ art practice in which I have exhibited my work internationally. I also continue to expand my skills through taking classes, currently through a fellowship I am improving my digital skills by taking media classes at BRIC Media Arts in Brooklyn, NY." less...

She showed new ways of fixing, editing, cutting and pasting pictures in Photoshop. She was quick to resolved an issue I had with a video project in Premier Pro. Mona was very patient when I didn't understand something and she found different ways of explain it to me until I understood it. I would recommend her to anyone who wants learn more about the Adobe Creative Suite.|
