Chicago-based watercolorist Renee Leone grew up in a long line of artists and art lovers. She always knew she was a creative soul, but it wasn’t until she was drawn to design school after college that she was certain she was a painter. Renee’s muse has always been the great outdoors. In her Travel Watercolor Series, she celebrates the emotional feeling spurred by taking in new landscapes. As Renee says, “From the vast open spaces, to the sprinklings of nature, to the dense foliage and canopies, I love stepping back and seeing what lies before me.”
