Mona Goldman (nee Silverstein) was born April 8, 1923, in Terespolya, Poland before moving to and growing up in Toronto. She began painting at an early age, being taught by a founding member of the Group of Seven, Arthur Lismer. In 1943 she attended the Chicago Institute of Design. Shortly after graduating and moving back to Toronto, she married Dr. Bill Goldman in 1947, and moved to Vancouver where they raised 3 sons, Ron, Howard, and Lorne.
