2015 Recap

Dec 31, 2015

20003_998830583463058_6827548615232771836_n2015 you were one life-changing year for me. I still can’t believe how much my life has changed over the last few years. I went from struggling as a freelancer in NYC in my small (usually freezing) apartment to traveling full time, creating large & small art pieces, working with amazing clients and being surrounded by family and friends that I love. I’m so deeply thankful…I’m still pinching myself.

Every one of you has played such a huge part in helping my dreams come true these past few years. Thank you for your support, you guys are helping my crazy ideas & dreams become a reality. And you’ve given my life meaning by letting me share my work with you.

Here’s a recap from 2015 for art;)

Coffee & Art with illy ssimo

Dec 19, 2015


I had so much fun talking all things coffee and art with illy issimo in NY a few weeks back. I first fell in love with Illy coffee while studying abroad in Florence, Italy. Every afternoon between classes, I would sit in the schools courtyard with my notebooks, an Illy cappuccino and a homemade biscotti. I’ll never forget those afternoons nor will I forget my first sip of Italian coffee…in Italy;)

I hope you enjoy this video of my #illyinsider artist story! And if you’re interested in winning a week’s worth of coffee from illy issimo, head on over to my instagram page @kelseymontagueart to learn more on how to enter!
