Jocelyne Lamontagne  Artist
For the Love of Art

Jocelyne Lamontagne

I was born in Montreal and lived there until 1997 when my husband Art and I moved west.  We spent our winters in Osoyoos, BC  and now have made Osoyoos our year round home.

After retiring in 2007, I was looking for a hobby and joined Artists on Main , formerly known as the

Osoyoos Painters and Potters.

With the help of fellow members I began to learn this new craft and a love of doing art developed.

I took several workshops from artists such as Bonny Roberts, Sandra Albo and Sharon Leonard as well as learning from art videos and books.

People ask where I get my inspirations.  It is very simple really, my inspirations come from life.  I remember places we visited, observation of nature, or just plain old day dreams.  trying to put it down on canvas or paper is challenging but that is the reason I keep on painting.

The joy of learning and the pleasure of painting every day is rewarding in itself.

I sincerely hope that you will enjoy viewing my work as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Yours truly


I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it. – Pablo Picasso
