Teaches In

BA Art History American University of Paris

MFA Academy of Art University San Francisco


Renée has lived between the United States and Paris, France studying fine art and art history. She graduated from the American University of Paris with a BA in Art History, and has her MFA from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. She now resides in southern California and teaches at Otis College of Art & Design.

Grounded in realism, her works are conceptual using symbolism and composition to illustrate her perspective. She is currently working on a new series of paintings inspired by dreams and thoughts on how we communicate with God. This series delves into the uncanny (referring to Sigmund Freud's respective essay) and pushes the boundaries of her representational comfort zone into a neo-surreal and abstract space.
