ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ren is an Australian born, third generation artist with European roots and an adventurous gypsy soul. Entirely self-taught, she gives credit to her artistic parents for encouraging self-expression and a love for the arts from a very early age. Throughout her school years Ren excelled in various mediums including ceramics, woodwork and textiles.
Although her career took a different path for a time, it was her burning desire to create that would eventually pave the way towards a successful career in the arts. After many years of travel Ren settled on the Island of Grand Cayman in the 90's where she met the love of her life and quickly found her way into a growing art scene.
Ren lives and breathes art! Most days you'll find her working from her studio White Dog Art. When she's not physically painting she's mentally gathering snapshots of her surroundings, travels, life experiences and people she meets along the way. She's become known for her unique style that has been described by many as Island Whimsical - images that exude bold color and vivid imagery.
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. Its that and her down-to-earth openness that will have you walking away with a smile on your face and a little insight into her creative process, inspirations and passion for life.
Over the years Ren has exhibited both locally and internationally with her work now in private and corporate collections including the permanent collection of the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands.
"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."
