Monique Serres is a realist painter who uses charcoal, pastel, gouache, acrylic, watercolor and oil. Color and proportion are paramount in her compositions. She often uses metaphors to depict the constant struggle of mankind to attain peace or perfection. Her work also depicts African and Caribbean people in their everyday struggle for survival, a revelation of their daily reality. She thinks that the value of art lies equally in what it says and how it says it by implying meaning through allegory, pose, facial expression, or by evoking them through elements such as color and form.
