About Mo

Welcome to my website.  My name is Monika Brauer but my friends call me Mo. I was born and raised in Rheinberg, Germany and share my artistic talents with many of my family members. After studying Home Economics and Agriculture in Germany, I immigrated to Canada in 1980.  I have lived and worked  in Toronto, Ontario and  British Columbia . About  1995 I moved to  the Grey-Bruce Region of Ontario and currently live in Owen Sound.

Over the years I have expressed my artistic talents in many different media. From textile to wood carving, clay sculpting, photography, videography and painting, I am always up to a new challenge.

My inspiration to paint animals stems from my love of all creatures but in particular the love of dogs. Beside being an artist, I own and operate a dog-grooming business, which never lacks "models" for my paintings.

I have owned Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers for over 25 years and have participated in many dog show competitions.

Through my professional involvement with dogs, I have developed a keen sense of detail which are reflected in all of my paintings.   

My paintings are in collections in the USA, and Canada, as well as in Costa Rica.


Bring the wild into your home.

I have expanded my animal art to include wildlife.

It's all in the detail...

I pay close attention to detail. Even the smallest freckle, dot or marking is important. A good quality photograph makes all the difference.
