"Sharpie is all about generating bold ideas to impact positive change in the world," said Gina Lazaro, Vice President, Brand Management, Writing at Newell Brands. "Through her murals across the country, Kelsey inspires others and encourages Sharpie fans to define their own canvas. The World Is Your Canvas campaign will showcase additional talent throughout the year and how they use Sharpie to bring their own canvases to life."

Known for her angel wing murals, Montague designed a Sharpie-inspired bedroom in a vacation rental property in Nashville, TN. She utilized the brand's permanent markers, including Fine Point, Ultra Fine Point, Chisel Tip and King Size, to decorate the walls with her own drawings and artwork, which was a first-of-its kind project for Montague. Strictly using these products, she revamped a once blank canvas to create a hand-drawn fireplace, TV frame and gallery wall, creating beautiful décor directly on the walls. She also used Sharpie throughout the house to create a stained-glass window and wall of cowboy boots. In this case, Montague's canvas was a house that she made a home, bringing her vision to life with help from Sharpie.

"To me, the World Is Your Canvas campaign is rooted in the idea that you can do anything and create something that is one-of-a-kind," said Montague. "That's where Sharpie and I align. We're committed to supporting others in their creative endeavors. I've personally been a fan of the brand for years and trust all of the products wholeheartedly, making working so closely with the team a really great experience for me."

To continue showcasing the capabilities of Sharpie, additional creators will share how the products can be used across various canvases, categories and creations throughout the year. Consumers can showcase their own masterpieces by using the hashtag #WorldIsYourCanvas on social for a chance to be featured on Sharpie's Instagram or win product.
