Louise Lamontagne's Bio
Louise Lamontagne's vividly realized oil paintings, with their simple, bold forms expressed in strong strokes and richly saturated colors, have earned her a significant place among contemporary Western artists.
Although known primarily for her landscape paintings, Louise has also explored the human figure in 2 and 3 dimensional form and paints non-objective subject matter in a variety of mediums including encaustic, an ancient form of painting with wax.
Lamontagne’s work has been exhibited at galleries and museums throughout the Northwest, Rocky Mountain and New England states as well as having exhibited in Germany, Canada and New Zealand.
Winner of numerous other awards, her collectors include Seattle University, West One Bank, the City of Kent, WA and the Oki Foundation and the Missoula Art Museum. She recently had her first solo museum show at the Missoula Art Museum entitled “My Closet Collection” and was also juried into the “Montana Triennial 2012” at MAM.
Raised in Manchester, NH, Louise began her college art education at the University of Bridgeport in CT. She continued her studies at the School of Visual Concepts in Seattle, WA and regularly attends professional artist workshops.
