Monica Ritterband (1955), journalist
Monica Ritterband grew up in a family of artists and helped in great art projects at the age of 13.
She did not choose art as her career path from the start, she chose words and became a journalist. But the art never lost its hold on Monica Ritterband's life and while pursuing a career as a journalist, she constructed iron sculptures with a soldering iron, modelled statuets and created miniature glass mosaics with a spirited and unique expression.
Devoted to art
A turning point was reached in 1997, when she decided to pursue art full time. Monica Ritterband has never regretted the decision and many art lovers relish in that fact. People in many Danish towns can enjoy her large, but elegant steel sculptures today and she has been nominated to the title as Artist of the Year no less than 4 times.
Fascinated by music
Monica Ritterband has always been interested in the musical notes and she has made drawings of artistic notes and discant clefs with human characteristics for many years.
This fascination has been expressed in a whole family of notes that has become the key element in Monica Ritterband's artistic universe.
Now the smal musical notes also exist as Royal Copenhagen porcelain.
