FEATURED ARTIST • JANA TONSFELDT
Mixed Media

Exhibit from May 10–June 13, 2016.

Jana likes to combine all the elements of pastels, colored pencil, oil, acrylic, watercolor and the inks together. She has a varied interest level: from Asian art, African art, and unique animals, to things that reflect life experiences, nature, and travel. Many of her paintings tell a story, and they will remind you of something you have experienced.

For the past 14 years he has also taught Communication Art & Design classes at Alexandria Technical & Community College in Alexandria, Minnesota.
