MONIKA STEINER Theia

It is the unseen aspects of life that interest Monika Steiner. The Fairfax artist born in Switzerland uses her work to better under- stand metaphysics and meditation, and how abstract art can express
what the eyes or mind can’t understand.
“I am attracted to spheres because they are nature’s most efficient shape
— requiring the least amount of structure to enclose the greatest possible vol-
ume,” she says about the images in her painting. “I am amazed by their ability
to conjure entities as massive as planets or as small as subatomic particles.”
The Golden Reflections
At only 26 years old, Griffin Moon is well on his way to a career in the arts. The San Anselmo resident grew up in a creative environment and feels fortunate to have dis-
covered his artistic passions at a young age. When he was a kid,
neighbors and family would often see Moon running around
with a pen and pencil drawing on just about any surface he
could find. Now that passion is expressed through the lens of a
camera (in this case a Canon 7D).
