Our People

Monika Rycerz

Lecturer

Monika Rycerz is an educator and printmaker. Her work is inspired by human condition, observations from the process and the unexpected. She champions a collaborative approach to work and brings this aspect to her own practice whenever possible.

Monika trained in the UK and USA. She completed a BA in Surface Design at London College of Communication in 2009 and spent a semester at the University of Connecticut. In 2015 she graduated from the MA in Multidisciplinary Printmaking at the University of the West of England, where she was awarded the Agassi Book Arts Prize for her installation 'Everyone dreams'.

She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally - including in the USA, China and Greece.

Her current practice is based around working on socially engaging projects with local communities. She has led and run creative workshops and projects for disadvantaged adults in Plymouth and Bristol, focusing on collaboration and participation.

Her interdisciplinary approach to work incorporates traditional and digital printmaking processes leading to hybrid prints and one-off room installations. She is interested in materials and challenging the process, and encourages experimentation and innovation.

Monika currently teaches across all levels of our BA (Hons) Painting, Drawing & Printmaking programme.
