hello – i’m renn. i'm a self-taught traditional artist & full-time graphic designer.

my art primarily features animals as the core subject matter, as well as themes and elements inspired by nature. i also enjoy incorporating geometry and symbolic elements into my pieces.

i work with a variety of traditional art mediums such as colored pencil, watercolor, gouache, and metallic ink.

when i'm not drawing or working, i like to swim, garden, go exploring with my Siberian husky, read, and play sandbox RPGs.


q: what materials do you use?

colored pencils:
faber castell polychromos

watercolors / gouache paint:
mijello white class hybrid watercolor
winsor & newton gouache

arches aquarelle hot-pressed watercolor paper
hahnemühle grey-toned paper sketchbook

q: did you go to art school?

no — i'm self-taught. i have a bachelor of sciences in design & digital media, and am currently working full-time as a graphic designer. the design background does help me in my art, though — especially with things like composition and color theory.

q: how long have you been drawing?

i've been 'drawing' since i was probably around nine or ten, but i've only been approaching art more seriously for the last three or four years. i don't currently have any plans to turn it into a career — i just enjoy it as a creative hobby.

q: do you take commissions?

i don't. i do plan to offer prints of my personal work in the future though.

coming soon.
