Have you looked at Gtk#? If you are a Windows shop (using Visual Studio,
etc.), I would try to use the Gtk# Installer for .NET Framework SDK, so
that you can start using some of the C#/Gtk# Application project
templates that get installed and are accessible through Visual Studio
"New Project" in the File menu. This may give you a way to begin playing
with Gtk# development right from the comfort of your Windows development
environment. The resulting application can later be rapidly used in *NIX
OS that sport modern versions of GTK/GNOME.

MonoDoc documentation has quite a bit of information on Gtk# and
consulting the Gtk# mailing list along with participation on the #mono
IRC channel would get you started.
