Meet Montana. Originating from South Africa/ Scotland, Montana is an aerial seascape artist based in the Northern Beaches of Sydney, who specialises in bringing her drone photography to life with paint, creativity and passion. Focusing on the crashing of waves and the ocean’s endless shades of blue, Montana’s art finds creative ways to showcase Australia’s stunning scenery and bring it to life in homes around the world.
