30 Days of Artists: Kendra Monk | Take Your Pick

Kendra Monk

Kendra Monk as Art Bra Austin Model, 2013

Kendra Monk performs double duty at this year’s Art Bra Austin.  As a survivor, Kendra proudly celebrates 2.5 years, and as an artist, she taps into her journey and offers up “Take Your Pick.”  Summed up best by Kendra herself, she says, “I was inspired by the Austin music scene…Seeing and appreciating the struggle of musicians in a place like this is reminiscent of the determination and perseverance of the many Central Texas women I’ve met that are battling breast cancer. Music takes so many forms—celebration, worship, remembrance—and throughout my own battle with breast cancer, I’ve relied on many different anthems to help me represent my feelings. This Art Bra entry is an example of celebration and represents the gritty rock ‘n’ roll determination needed to manage breast cancer.”

We think you took the words right out of our mouths, Kendra.
