"As a Canadian Journalist, I have written about many noteworthy subjects, catering to the interests of various communities. I am proud to have had the opportunity to appreciate the work of Canadian Artist, Mona Youssef, whose work transcends thoughts and imagination from the most simple of concepts. We human often overlook the most basic beauty that surrounds us every day. Through natural light and shadows, Mona has captured the essence or reality of objects on canvas so they are impossible to ignore. Often our life is composed of what our thoughts make it. Viewing her work has given me a different perspective in which to view life. The blazing color and intricate detail's expresses how life is to be enjoyed. Pride makes us do things well, but it's love that brings them to perfection. Mona has great love to create feelings as optimism and hope, to all who view her work." Kevin Otto, Edmonton, AB, Canada
My realistic oil paintings on canvas reflect the unique characteristics of Canada. The four seasons have influenced me at a very early age. Thereafter, living in Canada has enriched my experience as we have the most beautiful four seasons. Over time, I've realized that the four seasons meant much to me. Having traveled around the world while perceiving the surroundings, I observed the amusing versatility in the universe as there nothing is entirely, typical to the other yet, the whole creation is working together harmoniously, supporting its elements to presents values, different strengths and beauty of each subject, as individual and as a whole. Subconsciously, this what I've been conveying in my paintings. Even though, each painting has different subject, character, set of colors and feeling of its own surroundings yet, stands out differently from the rest while all paintings work as one body under same theme of the four seasons, performing the whole year harmoniously and transmitting from season to the other. So are we all have different abilities, qualities, talents, colors, languages and cultures, nevertheless, living in one world, each one of us adds values and beauty to our societies, cultures and to our history to enjoy life.
