Mónica Meira (London, 1949) is a painter, sketcher, and portraitist of Argentine origin. Following her father, the diplomat Ramón Meira-Serantes, the family arrived in Colombia in 1956 as the dictatorship of Rojas Pinilla's was nearing its end. The family experienced several curfews in the city of Bogotá. She studied art at Universidad de los Andes from 1967 to 1971. In 1971, she married the Colombian painter Juan Cardenas with whom she had two children, Miguel and Veronica. Each developed a particular body of work that expresses their particular vision of the world[1]. Once married, she lived in Paris from 1983 to 1987 and since 1992 has lived between Bogotá and New York. In 2003 she became a naturalized Colombian.
