Renée Leone is a Chicago-based watercolor artist with a Design and Communication education (BFA from Harrington Institute and BA from Loyola University). An accomplished free lance artist, Renée expresses her love for travel, art and the outdoors in her Travel Watercolor Series. Renée's images represent chapters of her life, culminating in an artistic journal depicting the places she has been and the experiences she has encountered along the way.
Renée attributes her love of art to her many early family influences, including her grandfather's sculptures, her father's avid art collecting and her eldest brother's art and architectural background. Combining her childhood passion for knitting and crocheting, with her affinity for mosaics, quilts, and stained glass windows, Renée uses her art to tell her story. The result is a harmonious pattern of color and whimsy, giving the viewer a window into her world of space, color and feelings.
