  • the story

Borough Love

Like a visual travel journal, artist Renée Leone's vibrant series of geographic watercolor paintings offers entrancing sights as seen through the artist's eyes. Renée combines her affinity for the geometric patterning used in textiles, mosaics, and stained glass to create city portraits that depict not only what she saw in a particular location, but, more significantly, what she felt. Brooklyn Bridge pays homage to one of New York's most iconic sights. The arches and criss-crossing cables of the bridge's design truly stand out with Leone's unique colorblock-inspired aesthetic.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Renee Leone

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.
