Glendive, Montana Artist Lestai Keller

     Lestai was born and raised in Glendive, Montana. She is the youngest of six children. She and her siblings were home schooled, and she states that her artistic skills were largely self-taught, although she has received the greatest encouragement from her parents. She also credits much of her inspiration and art training to her sister, Jubilee, also an active artist.

     She started drawing when she was ten years of age. She cites her greatest artistic influences as local artists Pamela Harr and Shana Baisch. She began working mostly in pencil and later to colored pencil, watercolor, charcoal, pastel and acrylics. She enjoys painting still lifes, wildlife and animals, scenic landscapes and portraits. She also paints and sells cute key holders featuring old-fashioned Montana outhouses.

     Lestai has been an active participant in the Annual Junior Duck Stamp competitions, receiving Honorable Mentions for her submissions in 2005, 2005 and 2006. She and her siblings display in local Art and Craft shows, the annual Coin Show, the "Made in Montana" store and at the Dawson County Arts Unlimited Gallery in Glendive.
