Interests and Personality

BiographyI am a Montana artist. My work ranges in medium from oil, to encaustic. Work is rendered using varied tools from brushes to heat guns, which help me impart emotion and feeling. My work reflects my personal philosophies on nature, social consciousness and the human condition. The literal translation of the name Renee means “reborn.” I have literally been reborn 5 times. I am drawn to women’s issues, their struggles and their amazing strength. I have always found solace in the company of animals, and they are often my subjects. I was inspired early in life by the great Mexican artists with their sense of humor, color and passion. Nicholai Fechin is another artist I greatly admire, and I love the noir work of Odd Nerdrum.
InterestsNature, spirituality, quantum physics, books, art, wine, gourmet and natural food, sustainable living, horses, and following my joy.
MusicVery ecclectic - just about everything but bad country.
FilmsFrida, Memoirs of a Geisha, To Kill a Mocking Bird, Crash. Quest for Fire. The Slaughter Rule, Heaven, Stay–I love the independent film genre.
TelevisionBig Love, The Daily Show
BooksToo many to mention - avid reader
HeroesWilliam Campbell, Bill Moyers, Dalai Llama, Al Gore, anyone who stands up for what they believe in.
