We had the good fortune of connecting with Dita Montana and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dita, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor for my brand for me to stay successful is staying consistent. Consistency is in the top 3 most important factors in my art journey. To me, being consistent also means staying motivated & inspired by positive forces and life situations around you.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My artwork is very color and emotion heavy, I purposely and carefully match certain tones with eachother to evoke emotions. I’m most proud that I have been blessed with the opportunity to create fulltime & remain financially stable and motivated through such unpredictable times. Being a professional did not come easy as there were a lot of late bill payments, self doubt & tough obstacles but I remained persistent and made sure to keep that confidence in myself. My brand is self, which means it is genuine, creative and authentic.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I operate through emotion so whatever we’re feeling at the time is what we decide to do. My real life best friend & I are usually chilling sitting up talking gossip & life but sometimes we turn up. I like grown & sexy lounges with good music, mom & pop shops with good food and even better energy, and last but not least nature! I’d love to go camping, hiking, sightseeing and just driving around embracing the beauty of the world.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to shoutout @artbaemeca for collaborating with me, being my art sister & for supporting me.
