Mona A. El-Bayoumi
Mona El-Bayoumi grew up in East Lansing, Michigan, where her household was filled with people from around the world. This exposure along with international traveling from a young age influenced her and thus her work. Her formal studies were at Michigan State University where she obtained her BFA in Painting and Drawing. Later, she pursued post-graduate studies in Art Education, and then obtained a Masters Certificate in Museum Studies at Georgetown University. She has been volunteering as a docent at the National Museum of Women in the Arts for the past 30 plus years. Mona has also worked for “Arts for the Aging” (AFTA), a program where artists facilitate art activities for senior citizens in the D.C. Metropolitan area. She was a Visiting Artist in Residence at Aidan Montessori School where she worked with young children.
Mona has exhibited in the United States and around the world including Egypt, Paris, and South Africa. In her exhibits, political themes in their various forms are reflected. Mona El-Bayoumi resides in Washington DC.
