My name is Monique and I’m an autistic and disabled creatrix in so-called Vancouver (British Columbia) living with HIV and ME/CFS. I’m an ardent student of monasticism and a reluctantly retired somatic therapist and grief counsellor.
As someone who’s mostly housebound, I find deep solace at my art table and sharing creative space with you makes me curious about all the ways creativity can connect and console us.
The phrase “Fully Woven” is my way of saying not one of us is alone and that we are all part of something more cohesive than we can clearly discern or thoroughly comprehend. You and I are somehow connected.
Fully Woven has been many things over the years and is now a virtual studio of my creative whims and delights.

Fully Woven’s Newsletter
These occasional emails are my way of staying in touch by sharing inspiration and announcements. There’s no schedule and they’re as much of a surprise to me as they’ll hopefully be to you. It’s kind of like getting an unexpected postcard from your kooky aunt.
