Renee' Womack first fell in love with art at a very young age when her mother exposed her to many creative projects and the colorful worlds of Beatrix Potter and Walt Disney.
As Renee' grew, so did her passion. She would spend hours in the local Hallmark store after grade school and doodling on adding machine tape so she would never run out of paper.
Today, she is an award-winning artist that is still following her heart in the beautiful, historic town of Leadville, Colorado where she continues to carry the parts of her craft she adored when she was young into her current work whether it be fine art, murals, graphics, illustration or product design.
Renee' found herself drawing as soon as she could hold a pencil because she loved using her imagination and being part of a fun world of color that she could create at her fingertips she says.
CheckAdvantage is proud to present the designs of Renee' Womack on their checks, address labels, and checkbook covers as part of their Licensed Artist Series. Trader Joe's, Home Fires Rugs and Kekacase from SanFrancisco and Blue Mountain Arts Publishing of Boulder, Colorado are additional manufacturers who represent the art of Renee on their products.
In Art school, Renee' tackled many different mediums like pen, ink, watercolor and acrylics. Over time, she settled on acrylics for their easy clean up and ability to layer in bold thick colors or water down for soft pastel like transparency. Her fine art has been classified as modern impressionism with similar color usage and strokes like Matisse, Peter Max and or Monet.
Though she uses Photoshop to touch up most of her final images and designs for reproduction, she still starts her creative process much like she did when she was drawing on adding machine tape.
Most of my ideas and designs start as fun, spontaneous doodles that are then creatively painted on canvas or developed as final drawings that are then colored and completed in Photoshop for product designs she says.
The finished products are happy, colorful, everyday illustrations that are vibrant and classy, with a touch of whimsical. She also enjoys mixing detail with bold, simple strokes for a modern impressionistic feel.
Creating art is an enjoyable process of peace and self-expression for Renee', but that is not the only reason she paints. She loves to create pieces that challenge her with fresh color combinations, composition, and subject matter in hopes of bringing joy to others and their surroundings.
Working with color is my passion she says and she believes her creativity is a gift of light that she is blessed to enjoy and wishes to share.
Ultimately, her images bring beauty, playfulness, and a color palette that soothes and inspires the senses. She hopes to inspire not just happiness in others, but a sense of peace and healing for all who need it.
