Mouna Ramcke has been in contact with many cultures and countries; she was brought up in Paris and Toulouse,(France) and has been living in Germany for more than 30 years. This makes her very receptive to her environment and is reflected not only in her personality but also in her artwork.
She was brought up in Paris and Toulouse, France. After high school she went to England where she received a grant from the Hampshire Authorities and started her studies at the university of Portsmouth . She completed her Bachelor of Arts with Honours in 1980.
She took her Master at the same time as a teaching assistantship at the University of British Columbia, Canada. Dr. Anne Scott and Dr. Claude Bouygue were her tutors and the supervisors of her theses.
In 1989-90 Mouna took classes in creative free painting by Martine Frébault at the association des Beaux-arts by Paris.
She participated to many workshops and seminars in Berlin and Hamburg.
From 1999 till 2007 Mouna Ramcke opened her atelier-gallery “Aqua-Art” to the public. There she also held art classes for adults.
In 2000 she created a project, “Pont des Arts”, (Bridge of the Arts) allowing an exchange between French and German artists. The project was supported by the French consulate, the regional parliament of Schleswig-Holstein and the European parliament in Strasburg. “Pont des Arts” was awarded by the Robert-Bosch Foundation.
Mouna found in 2008 a new location for her atelier were she works and gives art lessons.
