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!

  1. Thank you so much Ms. Montague for sharing your art with the world. I teach Art at Parkwood Elementary School in Jacksonville, NC and am using your illy video as an inspiration to my young artists. They know you are amazing, and you are helping to empower the next generation of artists.

    I wish you could see their shining faces. You are their art hero!

    Thank you again, Dave
