Montana is an acrylic painter based in Montreal, QC. Her practice consists of work on canvas, in sketchbooks, and on paper, originating from her 2022 100 Day Project. In her style of unblended mark-making, she explores how to create a piece with a tension between loose marks and a cohesive composition. In 2022, she moved from her home studio to a shared studio space in Ateliers3333.
In Montana's latest collection, Unexpected Gifts, she made five large paintings on canvases she built herself.

In 2017, Montana's interests in different art mediums (film, book-making, layout design+) coalesced in her love for painting. After her first painting course with prof. Wendy Edwards, she knew she would continue to paint for the rest of her life. She fell in love with the way painting felt... playing with liquid color on a surface, an endless puzzle of experimentation. She loved playing with the degree of control using different tools, paint consistencies, and layering styles.
