Monks’s paintings have been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions at the Kunst Museum in Germany and at the National Academy Museum of Fine Arts, New York. Her work is also represented in a number of in public and private collections. Monks was recently named among the most influential women artist alive today by Graphic Design Degree Hub. In 2018, several of her pieces were featured in the popular television series The Americans.
