Monique Nevarez is an undergraduate at New Mexico Highlands University, working towards bachelor's degrees in both Fine Arts and Business Entrepreneurship. During the summer of 2022, Nevarez was chosen to join the IRES cohort to Czechia where she used her technical ability in
the arts to help illustrate scientific diagrams of lava flows found in various quarries. In doing so she was able to help depict the group's field sites from a different perspective to offer other insights that may have otherwise been overlooked. Nevarez's illustrations were an alternative way to document visual observations of volcanic formations. The IRES grant provided her the opportunity to apply her talent in a real-world situation outside of an art studio. Monique Nevarez continues to expand her abilities as an artist by sculpting and creating new art every day.
