As an artist, Monnet uses film and video, printmaking, photography and installation work for cultural expression, exploring possibilities and limits, and to build a strong voice. She explores the dualities of her social, political, and spiritual identity, in order to develop a critical framework that explores the influence of oral histories, ancient life ways, and generational legacy. Her approach is cultural and personal, celebrating community, unconventional memory and identity.
