Featured ArtWalk Artist

Photographer, Film Producer Monique Wood

Monique Wood is a photographer who specializes in Kustom cars, traditional hot rods and nostalgic pin-ups.  She is also a talented graphic designer and film maker.

Since 2011, Monique has been shooting the Kustom Kulture scene and is a worldwide published writer and photographer for various magazines including Ol Skool Rods and Kar Kulture Delux.

In 2014 Monique began a documentary film about Bo Huff, a leader in the custom car world.  In addition to the usual producing, shooting and editing, “Bo Huff: A Documentary About His Life” involves pin-up and car photography.  It is due for release soon.

This show at the Access Center Gallery is a reflection of the work Monique has created through the years with models, friends and incredible cars.

The latest ACPSA Data from 2014 reveals that the arts and cultural sector contributed $729.6 billion or 4.2 percent to the U.S. economy that year.
