About the Author
Jane Monteith is a self-taught international-selling mixed media artist and an online educator and influencer. While Jane was trained in advertising and marketing, she worked for over a decade across Ontario as an independent artist designing and hand painting illustrations on vinyl substrates with highly pigmented screening inks. With her love of design and vibrant color combinations, she transitioned into working and creating her own art several years ago. Her work features colorful contemporary fluid patterns on birch wood panel, glazed with epoxy to result in a brilliant finish. Sharing her love of color, texture, and fluid art forms has gained Jane a large fan following on many social media platforms, including Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube. Jane's popular MOD Minis (a term she coined when she started creating fluid ink collage paintings on 4" wood panels) have been sold worldwide and sell out monthly on her website. Jane's much larger original works are sold through KOYMAN Galleries, located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. She immigrated from England to Canada in 1981 and now lives just north of Toronto.
