"Seeing a person's face light up when I give them something that I made brings me joy and makes everything I do worthwhile."

Welcome! My name is Renée. 

 

First, thank you to my family and friends who value my handmade designs and always offer "keep it real" feedback as they encourage me to stay true to myself and continue to pursue my goals.


Handmade is important to me. I am proud to come from a family that makes beautiful items by hand. For over 40 years, I have enjoyed knitting, crocheting, designing and making jewelry, sewing, painting, drawing, and many other creative expressions.

One of my first creative memories is when my Mom called me into the kitchen as a little girl. In the middle of the table was a fruit bowl with some decorations. She handed me a paintbrush and said, "Lesson one, paint what you see."

 

When I create something, I put my heart and soul into my work. Seeing a person's face light up when I give them something that I made brings me joy and makes everything I do worthwhile.

My favorite way to design is to spread everything out in front of me and start creating. Whichever way I choose to begin a design, the creative process is just that for me, a process. Sometimes ideas come quickly, and sometimes it takes weeks, months, or years to get something "right." I may find a beautiful gemstone or some gorgeous yarn, and I will hold onto it for years before I create a suitable design for it.

Thank you very much for stopping by to read a little about me. I hope you enjoy the pieces that I make. I wish you and your family safety and good health. :-)
