ReneeSpending summers at her grandparents’ country home in Missouri, Renee spent many hours making mud pies, unknowingly embarking on an art education that would ultimately dominate her life. In Kindergarten, Renee made her first pinch pot now lost among years of perfected pottery. Moving to Houston, Texas at age 8, Renee once again found her medium in the clay she dug from the creek bed that ran behind her house.

In high school, she took 4 years of art and 3 years of architecture, followed by 2 years of college art coursework. She went on to study with Judy Adams of Foelberg Pottery, Gallery and Studio in Houston. Renee participated  for many years in the annual Pyromania Festivals in Lafayette, Louisiana, learning specific Raku techniques from such well-known potters as Bruce O’Dell, Randy Brodnax, and Don Ellis.

The bowl pictured to the left was carved by Renee for auction to raise money for  Vera Bradley's breast cancer charity. The floral pattern on this platter is Vera Bradley's "Va Va Bloom" pattern. The high bidder paid $1150 for this beauty!

Renee is a certified instructor in Doc Holliday, Duncan, PMC, Mayco, Fashen-Hues, and Suncrest Embossed Art, having won the Mayco Ruby Pin and Duncan Shield.

Her motifs especially include Celtic knot work and reflect her love of stained glass. Renee also brings movement and fluidity to what is normally a static art form.

She is member of Clay Houston, CAMEO (Clay Artists Museum and Educational Organization, Lafayette Art Association, and the Salt Grass Potters.
