Monique Steele is a Jamaican born illustrator currently residing in NYC. Thematically, her art focuses mostly on exploring historical costuming, fan culture, and diabolical women in power. When she’s not drawing famous queens in history, you can find her deeply mired in the comings and goings of pop culture, trying to refine her spicy foods palette and lamenting no longer living the “island girl” lifestyle.
