About Diane Montreuil

Diane was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec. She studied Interior Design at Old Montreal College where some of her projects were published in numerous design magazines. She now lives in Toronto since 2000.

Diane grew up in a creative and entrepreneurial family. At a young age her parents enrolled her to “Les Beaux Arts” for young kids. Enmeshed in her world of creation she became a self-taught artist over the years.

Captivated by the Arts in all its shapes and forms & her love for Landscapes, scenes seemed to magically come together. In later time Diane discovered and understood why her life came together after discovering that she was a Métis (Algonquin) on both sides of her family. Being Métis (Algonquin), she was designated to the position of Education resource person at the MNOC - Métis Nation of Canada where she sits on the Board of Directors since 2016

The following are some of the highlights of Diane’s Artistic involvement and achievements.
