Drawing is the basis of her whole practice, extending towards performance, interactive situations, installation, digital college, printmaking, sound and film; she refers to it as cross-disciplinary drawing. In 2013 her practice was featured in Phaidon publication Vitamin D2: New Perspectives in Drawing and in 2012 "Hyperdrawing: Beyond the Lines of Contemporary Art" published by TRACEY (Drawing and Visualisation Research Institute) Loughborough University UK.
Monica Brooks is a musician who uses improvisation as the base method to composition, as well as the key approach when working with groups such as Great Waitress, Electronic Resonance Korps and West Head Project. Over the last few years, she has travelled the world with various projects to perform in spaces and at festivals including Music Unlimited (Austria), Café Oto (UK), Taipei Contemporary Arts Centre (Taiwan), MONA FOMA and the Sydney Opera House.
