Having spent a career in the creative Industry, Renee is passionate about design, architecture and art. Growing up in Africa with its striking sunsets and stunning Ndebele painted houses, combined with regular safaris and the beauty of the African landscape, fuelled her passion and love of wildlife with the colour of nature.
Describing her own work, she says “I paint mostly contemporary abstract art with an urban edge inspired by my heritage and love of all things urban”.
She recently fulfilled a lifelong ambition to build my own house with a dedicated studio with lots of natural light. “I love nothing more than putting on a great playlist, setting up a new canvas and begin creating something that hopefully will reflect my love of architecture, design, colour and texture”, she says
Renee lectures in Interior and kitchen design and values the impact art creates in our living spaces and the benefit of wellbeing it brings to our lives. Time spent in the creative industries has confirmed her belief that the spaces we live or work in are enhanced by the objects we surround ourselves. She loves the debate that art creates and says, “whether you like the painting, or you don’t, if it instigates discussion and opinion, then the artist’s work is done!”.
