JUDGE:  FLETA MONAGHAN is a life long artist with studios in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. She started painting as a child, first working in pastels, and then oils and acrylics. She also explored mixed media techniques, an interest she continues to delve into today. Her primary mediums today are oils on panel and encaustic mixed media painting. She is accomplished in portraiture, landscape and still life, but is drawn to the difficult genre of abstract painting. She holds a BFA from UNCA with a Magna Cum Laude with Distinction in Art, as a University Scholar, and Research Scholar. She earned her MaEd in 2 Year College Teaching focusing on Art from WCU graduating with a 4.0 GPA. A long time art educator, she has focused on adult teaching and has had the pleasure of jurying and curating numerous exhibitions. See more at:
