Mona CaronMona Caron grew up in the Swiss Italian Alps, among rivers, mosses, ferns, and lizards, where she dissected flowers instead of listening to lessons. She moved to San Francisco to study illustration and subsequently became one of the city’s premier muralists. Much of her work deals with human history, utopian possibility, and natural history.
