ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in Melbourne Australia, Ren travelled for many years before settling on the Island of Grand Cayman in 1995.
Ren is an established artist who lives and breathes art. She has created quite the following becoming widely known for her unique style depicting Island life as images that bounce of the canvas between multi-layered color. When she's not physically painting she's mentally creating images in her mind - snapshots inspired by her surroundings, her love of nature and the people she meets along the way.
The canvas is Ren's platform for self-expression, a way to communicate to the world through a universal language of color and vivid imagery. The joy in her art and down-to-earth openness is what draws her audience in while providing a little insight into her creative process, inspirations and passion for life.
Ren's work has been featured in Art of the Cayman Islands Fall 2016 and is included in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands and National Museum of the Cayman Islands. She has exhibited in group shows in Spain, Canada and the United States including Raw Arts Exhibit Colore Elefante Gallery, Valencia Spain 2005, Carrozzini Von Buhler Gallery, New York 2005 and Agora Gallery, New York 2008. She has been represented by the Ritz Carlton Art Gallery since 2007 and continues to participate in annual exhibitions throughout the Island.
"My journey through life has provided many experiences - stories I may one day write about. But in the meantime I'll express them through my art. Every piece I create is a piece of me - my energy, heart and soul. Being able to share this creativity with others is a blessing I don't take for granted. It has given me the opportunity to travel the world and meet some beautiful creative souls who to this day, continue to inspire my artistic journey."
