For as long as I can remember, I have always loved beautiful objects. From shiny, sparkly glass to soft velvet and smooth satin. My family dressed me up at a young age, piercing my ears with gold and jewels, and put me in red velvet dresses. I grew up with a true appreciation for feminine fashion.
Now I spend my days designing and creating fashion accessories and art, influenced by the styles and trends that have come and gone throughout the years. And so we are inspired to decorate ourselves, and the things around us. I enjoy creating beauty and spreading happiness.
My name is Monique L. Dorange and I live in Southern California with my husband and daughter. I was born and raised in Los Angeles and also spent a decade of my life in New Orleans, where my husband is from and my daughter was born. Now we reside in the deep south by New Orleans.
I am a lifetime self supporting artist, now supporting my family along with my husbands help. The internet has allowed me to reach wonderful people who share my same loves and interests, and I am able to sell my art and make a living. It takes a tremendous amount of work and drive, but we would not change a thing.
I always find it difficult to write about myself, but it makes sense to have some background on my life and career. So I hope to add to this and a page will take more shape in the future. Thank you so much for reading and support of my creations. You can find my glow in the dark jewelry and decor at Glowies.net 🙂
