Says Reneé: “Painting with dyes on silk affords luminosity not available with any other medium. The dyes permeate the fibers of the silk fabric, creating a wonderful shimmering and transparent effect. After the dyes are painted on, the fabric is steamed for several hours to set the color, then stretched and framed in a traditional manner.

The subjects for my silk paintings are varied, but I always try to interpret the things and places I love in color, composition, and form. I wander around beautiful northern California, where I live, with camera in hand. I try to capture the beauty in every place I travel, from Europe to Mexico.”
