Renée’s current focus is expressing her feelings through the language of flowers. She loves color, light, shadow, and the shapes created by these and paints these details using acrylic on stretched canvas. She enjoys going to places like the San Jose Municipal Rose garden and Filoli Garden to take photos of flowers. She will then choose a photo that inspires her and/or brings up feelings or memories she would like to express. Each flower is unique and only shines its beauty for a brief time but by painting it gives the flower a forever presence. Renée calls her style ‘painterly photographic’ because the flowers she paints almost look photographic but have a touch of painterly expression.
