About this Vendor
Renee grew up in Vermont. She graduated from Castleton State College in Castleton Vermont with a degree inMathematics. It is here that she began drawing and painting to fulfill her requirements in Fine Arts. What began as a requirement turned into a passion. She moved to Raleigh North Carolina in 1993, transferring with IBM. She left IBM after 25 years and continues to paint, sew and care for her 3 grandchildren in her spare time.
I have been drawing and painting here and there, for most of my life, usually in acrylics. It wasn’t until about a couple of years ago that I really decided to concentrate more on my art, something I really enjoyed doing. That was about the same time that my husband and I purchased a piece of property on the Pungo River in Eastern North Carolina. This gave me the perfect opportunity to paint nature at its best. I am also surrounded by nature here at our home in North Raleigh, just south of Wake Forest. I love to paint anything that has to do with nature. Whether it be my labs roaming around the shoreline or the beautiful barks on the trees that surround our home here in North Raleigh. My work continues to change and evolve as I pursue my love of painting. I love North Carolina and feel very fortunate to live here and paint in such a beautiful part of the country.
