   Jo Moncrief    
 

 


Jo Moncrief is primarily a self-taught artist. Her education is in Psychology but she always longed to do something artistic. Jo worked as the Creative Coordinator for an advertising agency. This job allowed her insight into the art world and she became a collector of original artwork. Later she worked for a major airline as a Flight Attendant which allowed her more flexibility to follow her true passion art.

Taking pottery in a summer class resulted in a 14 year obsession in ceramics. Early in the 21st century, her ceramics became less functional and more “painterly”. A decision was made to shift from a clay career into painting on canvas.

In 2004, Jo became an acrylic artist and has never looked back. Her abstract compositions are influenced by walks near her home... She follows the patterns of shadows on the ground, the sun's reflection on buildings & their surroundings. The intricate cracks and shading on the sidewalk are a major influence in the composition and patterns for her abstract designs. Her clay background has greatly influenced her colors and use of texture in her paintings.

She has won Best of Show in a national art exhibition and many Best of Category and First Place at many major juried art shows.

Her artwork has been featured in articles in the Dallas Morning News, Ft.Worth Star Telegram, Van Zandt County Line, etc. She is a popular workshop instructor and her artwork has can be found in many corporate offices, hospitals and private homes.
