Whitefish Goldsmiths is presenting Jodi Monahan for September’s Gallery Nights. Jodi Monahan is a new, up and coming artist from Missoula Montana. Jodi’s passion for painting was unearthed while she was designing a Touch of Tuscany room in her home and wanted a fresco painted. That room project began a journey into a painting emphasis on the exploration of anything Italian, with special attention paid to the Tuscan region and the colors it brings to life. This wonderful, creative world of oil on canvas and oil on textured board allows you to use her art to stay connected to the feelings, tastes, and rich colors of the region in your everyday life. Being married to an Irishman from Butte Montana, her body of work adds a bit of Irish and Celtic tradition. Jodi’s sense of family history is richly evident in her paintings with Irish and Italian influences.
