Jane Monsson3

The Richardson Civic Art Society will be holding its next program meeting on Tuesday, February 16, 2016.

February’s artist is Jane Monsson. She will be demonstrating texturing.

Jane’s’ love of horses is transferred to the canvas in innovative, original and beautiful ways. She uses texture and sometimes wire to build up the images. Jane Monsson has a strong sense of composition as well as color and is able to execute stunning work in a variety of mediums.

Jane’s art pieces are major attractions at horse shows across the country. Locally her work can be seen at Cafe Bohemia in Plano and at ArtWalk in Valley View Center, Dallas.

To view more of her work, please visit her Facebook page: Monsson Fine Art.
