This is a statement by Mr. Montgomery, "I have known from the first time I picked up a crayon that I wanted to be an artist. In 1992, I received Bachelor of Arts with honors with concentrations in Graphic Design, and Drawing & Painting from LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia. That same year enrolled in the Illustration program at Portfolio Center in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating in 1994 winning several awards and honors. I was soon hired as an on staff illustrator for a small design firm for a year and a half, then struck out on my own. From 1998-2012 I taught and shared my craft as an adjunct Illustration Professor. Now for the past 20+ years I have tremendously enjoyed being able to pursue my love for art professionally as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer. I work/play from my home studio near Atlanta, GA."
