Self taught artist, Renee Mitchell’s finely-honed line work reference a detailed knowledge of the animal world. Her connection with the essence of the creatures she so intimately portrays (fur babies and spirit animals) is palpable and indeed the creatures appear paused to move: onto the dance floor, off the page.
A passion for pens and love of freedom and movement can be seen in Mitchell’s largest body of works. In her Scratch Series animals and sea creatures alike show fine detail and loose line working together in harmony to bring animals to life.
A portion of these works combine pen with acrylic paint offering a mixed media contemporary take on the traditional portrait.
