While having a niche is nice, the underlying architecture of my successful career has been built upon a foundation of flexibility, allowing my creativity to gleam and glide across the span of all media arts. Many clients call me a modern renaissance woman - My Name’s Renee - Which comes from the same french root word as Renaissance. The basic tenets of Renaissance Humanism, considered people limitless in their capacities for development, and the notion that human beings should embrace all knowledge and develop their capacities as fully as possible.
This sometimes makes planning one’s calendar a challenge. Monday I may be making concept art for a McDonald’s commercial, Tuesday could be brainstorming ideas for visually promoting the Discovery Channel’s new season’s lineup, Wednesday has me creating shooting boards for photographers and director’s like Ellen Von Unwerth or David LaChapelle. Thursday may be crafting character design for one of Mr Spielberg’s new brainchilds. Friday is car commercial advertising agency boards for folks like Lexus and Toyota, and the weekend overtime has been a blast designing plush toys for Target. Sunday, I’d better rest, because next week I have set design deadlines for a new network show.
My Professional and Academic life and interest in human consciousness has kept me researching a broad spectrum of subjects such as transpersonal psychology, psi phenomena, Eastern and Western philosophy, quantum science, process theory, the neuroscience of creativity and cultural shamanism.
