About me

Hello! My name is Renée. I've been a professional artist since 2009, with over 10 years of studio experience. As an artist in animation, I've had the privilege of working as key animator on Carmen Sandiego, lead lighting artist on Klaus, and BG designer and AD on the Peanuts Specials, for which I was nominated for a Leo Award for my art direction on the episode "For Auld Lang Syne." My expertise lies in storytelling and lighting, allowing me to breathe life and depth into the stories I help bring to the screen.

But my skills are not constrained by a studio job; I am also very dedicated to my personal work and artistic growth, so I'm always reinventing myself, learning new skills, and trying new styles and forms of art. This has brought me to work on smaller gigs such as book and album cover art, character design for brands, and a bunch of personal commissions. Moreover, I published an art book in 2017 that features most of my pin-up paintings and a little book on lighting that I made in 2023.

Besides my passion for art, I enjoy teaching and leading teams as it allows me to make a greater impact. My goal as a leader is not only to help artists bring out their very best but also to provide them with the tools to continue developing their skills beyond their day job.
