Monika Danos developed her love of art and photography while growing up; her mother painted and family trips to art museums were frequent outings. It was when her mother took an Introduction to Photography course at a local art school that Monika’s interest in darkroom printing took root.

An engineer by profession, Monika lives in Seattle, WA with her husband, two children and cat. When not taking care of daily life, she can be found chasing shadows with her camera, or printing in the darkroom.
