Monika L. Burkhart/Photographer/Author:  I am inspired by the sleek minimalism of Scandinavian design. Each photographic concept is carefully visualized, and the resulting image possesses not only an intrinsic energy and exciting luminescence, but the bold beauty of unparalleled graphic design. I strive to capture the soul of a subject and infuse it with the look of a contemporary painting . . . gently touched by shimmering color.

I have specialized in photography for many years, creating images from portraits to scenics. My work has been employed by stock photo companies and has appeared on greeting cards and in travel magazines. Recent images include vividly dynamic abstracts.

My writing has appeared in Saint Louis local and regional magazines. On-line retailers Amazon and Barnes & Noble carry my latest books. See Books2Read. The Civil War romantic novella “IF LOVE BE LOST”  is available now!

A single photograph can speak volumes in any language, but that image can only be created through the wonder of light. At The Luminescent Paintbox, I make use of that  concept to the absolute max.
