Tell us a little about yourself:
My name is Renee Monaco and I am a shoe designer & painter based in NYC. Growing up in Chicago made me the hustler, dreamer, and artist that I am today. My memories of running around the city with my friends and eating hot dogs in the summer inspire my art so much. Those brief moments of pure happiness are what I try to obtain in my art. I want you to walk past my art and feel that little bit of happiness we all get to cherish only ever so often.
You can find Renee’s artwork on her website.
What kinds of art do you create?
I make moments of excitement and thrills into an immortal piece of art! I do this with acrylic, gems, and feathers on multiple mediums whether it is sculpture, wood or canvas.
How did you get started?
I have been painting all over the walls of my childhood home as long as I can remember. If I could get my hands on something that made a mark and place to make that mark I did it. Art has been a part of my ritual ever since I was a child and art has been consistent in my life and I am so grateful that I can share it with the world.
Describe your artistic style:
A peachy burst of love and positivity.
