I am an artist, a writer and a mom, although not necessarily in that order. I am also a breast cancer survivor, but that is a story for another day.
My illustrations are created primarily with scratchboard, although I still love to pull out the paint and brushes and get colourful. These days I am trying to master digital illustration to reduce waste for projects that don’t necessarily need ‘originals.’
Wherever possible, I utilize eco-friendly practices in my studio and product line.
This year I will be participating in a few design markets and art exhibits in and around Melbourne. I have three picture books published by Random House Australia, One Very Tired Wombat, Colour for Curlews, and The Great Garden Mystery, one baby board book, Once I Heard a Little Wombat, and another due in August 2016. I am also illustrating two books for Scholastic Australia – the first is Daddy, You’re Awesome! and the second will be released in March 2016.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or ideas for illustration projects, exhibits or freelance work.
For all book and literary projects, I am represented by Jill Corcoran Literary Agency.
For school visits, workshops and talks, I am represented by Creative Net.
Note from CYA Conference: Renee is one of our success stories, and we are so happy to have her back a presenter this year!
