Bio"The Chestnut Group gives me a place to belong with my passions for painting, conservation of land, and historic preservation." Renée served as the group's president in 2018 and 2019. Having begun painting from a mature place in life, she has chosen the best teachers, both locally and internationally, to learn technique, materials, and philosophy. Subjects are inspired from everyday life, color, nature, and travel to new and favorite places. Renee looks forward to a robust and prolific season of work in 2020.
