Ron Monsma | Still Lifes & Figures in Pastel

Ron Monsma hails from a musical family: his sister is a singer; his brothers are drummers. Renowned as a consummate draftsman and master of traditional techniques in both oil and pastel, he’s a professor at Indiana University South Bend, where he teaches drawing and painting. His work has often been featured in The Pastel Journal, where he won the Jack Richeson/Best of Show award in the 2009 Pastel 100 Competition and in Pure Color: Best of Pastel (North Light Books). Miller Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio, represents his paintings. To learn more, visit his website at www.ronmonsma.com.
