Stoneware ceramics for home and garden.
Renée moved from Sweden to England in 1994 to study Ceramic Design at Central saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London. During the Summers she worked as an assistant to ceramic artist Kate Malone, where for the first time, Renée got to experience how exuberant and large as life ceramics could be. Coming from minimalist Sweden, she had never seen pots like that before.Moving to Weston-super-Mare in 2001, Renée now creates work by making a basic shape that is either coiled, slab built or press moulded. Hand modelled details are added, giving each piece a sense of movement. The designs are loosely based on nature. It is not important to Renée to copy it, but to evoke in the viewer a smile that one automatically gets when seeing the wonders of colours and shapes in nature.The chosen material is a white stoneware clay that is high fired making every piece frost proof and suitable to be displayed outdoors.
Award winning pastel artist specialising in seascapes and water.
Cycling pictures and unusual illustrations including dog prints.
Oil painter of local landscapes, portraits, life.
I take inspiration from my immediate environment often painting outdoors before developing larger or more abstracted works in the studio. Originally from rural Carmarthenshire, I currently paint the Severn Estuary from my home in Portishead.I often paint in oils using a limited palette to capture the beauty within this often bleak landscape.Complementary to this I enjoy the representational challenge of portraiture. I have successfully completed a number of commissions and have exhibited at the Holburne Portrait Prize in Bath.I have shown landscapes and portraits in many galleries and venues in and around Bristol and Bath including the RWA Autumn Exhibition and the North Somerset Arts Trail as well as the Mall Galleries in London.
