Hello. I am a painter and photographer with a passion for all things related to art and design. I find inspiration in the patterns, textures and colors of everyday life and enjoy working with a wide range of mediums. I received my formal education as a graphic designer and have pursued a career as an advertising Art Director/Creative Director. Currently I am beyond thrilled to be able to focus on my life time love of both painting and photography. https://instagram.com/monicajanesfineart

Hi Monica, thank you for the kind note. I appreciate it. : ) Your Peaceful Greetings is awesome!
Thank you for the sweet words about my work, Monica! You've got some great entries, wishing you the best of luck in the holiday challenges! :)
Thanks so much for the like Monica :) – super encouraging. Your work is so lovely and bright, perfect for the holidays!
Hi, Monica, Thanks so much for liking my "You Can Zig But Can You Zag". Combining my drawings with digital color is new for me so any feedback is so appreciated. Sorry it's taken me so long to thank you but better late than never. Good luck with all your work too!
Hey Monica! Thanks so much for your note, it was so sweet of you to take the time to message me - (sorry this response is SO delayed) - it made my day to see your comment about my calligraphy!! I've had so much fun practicing :) Best of luck to you in the challenges!!
Thanks for the like on my little monster guy Monica! Good luck in the challenges :)
Happy to help!! Buzz me any time :) good luck!
I'm not sure you need the type... I think it works ok without it; just my opinion though :)
Oh Monica, your paintings are GORGEOUS! You are so talented!! I wish I could paint!
I struggle with submitting illustrations to Minted as well; sometimes i get lucky but I have a lot of duds :) Keep working at it, it takes time! And definitely keep painting - I would buy so many of them in a heartbeat! <3
Hi Monica!! Thank you so much for you kind words! They made my day :) So glad you liked the card (and the envelope!!). Happy New Year!! xo
Hi Monica:) Thanks for the support on my entries, esp the Zoo series! I appreciate the feedback! YES, I think your winter shot can be entered. They did ask for landscapes, and one of the things people love about snow days is the beauty and quiet of it all, and your photo perfectly expresses that. You get 30 entries, so you can if you want to. As to how to enter your 2nd pic in the comments section, you write something, ie:"here is the photo without type", and then "click to add photo"-add that photo, then make it the "top comment."That's what minted artists suggested I do in another challenge, in a similar situation. Hope that helps:))
Monica, thank you for the like on Summer walk and Urban Blocks! I appreciate it. Your work is fantastic. I really like Inside the Wave and Chili Peppers.

Hey There! Thanks for your feedback and comments too. It's always a wonderful feeling when someone likes your work and sometimes we do not praise each other enough as we get caught up in our daily routines ;) As for the 15 about 5 of those were not really completed. Was hoping to get to it Tuesday night, but since it was our oldests b-day I did not get through all the desired revisions. I tried ;) Enjoy the holidays and good luck in this challenge!!
and hesitated because of the timing! good luck!
Good luck in the wedding invitation challenge, Monica! You've got some solid entries! I love good design, but I have never even attempted to enter a stationery challenge. I just enjoy watching the lovely submissions flood in. :)
Thank you Monica for your helpful comment on my Holiday Wedding design,I really appreciate it :)
Usually 24 hours for stationery ;) So edit away ;) It is a wonderfully detailed design, just think it would benefit from filling in the top/bottom ;) I know how it is to feel rushed as I have 4 kiddos!
Hey Monica, Thanks for the feedback earlier today on my twirling rosette design. For some reason I missed making the outline on the left half of the silver design. Not sure what happened, but I'll fix when I submit the alternative colorways. Thanks for the feedback - appreciate it!
