About The Artist

Monica Zane

began a career in the arts studying the natural landscapes and seascapes of Avalon. With a quest to diversify in the arts, she was awarded a 2-year scholarship to the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center in NYC. She toured Europe with the musical “Cats” (in German and English) and performed for a few years (singing in French and Italian) in an orchestra in Monte Carlo, where she opened for acts like Ray Charles, Liza Minelli, and Michael Bolton. She has sung in jazz clubs in NYC and wrote, produced, and starred in a one-woman show that had a run at the Grove Street Playhouse, The Bowery Poetry Club, and The Cape May Theater. She has written TV and film scripts, songs, and children’s books.

RUDY DOESN’T LIKE ROGER is her first published. Throughout her travels and extensive theater and film work, she has continued to paint, showing her artwork in galleries, in benefits, and in film and television (HBO’s “Divorce,” USA Network’s “Royal Pains”). She has worked closely with clients doing hundreds of large scale commissioned paintings. She is a member of The National Art’s Club in NYC and a SAG AFTRA AEA member for her work in film, television and theater. She has a studio in NYC and in Avalon, NJ.
