Welcome to my Patreon page, where I'm sharing my artwork and my experiences as an artist! This platform allows us a range of interactions, from what we might talk about and check out in my flat files while sharing a cozy cup of tea...to opening a bottle of wine...to a veritable champagne fountain of exclusive content, experiences, and art!  



With Patreon, you can support and join me in my artistic journey, with insights into my work, success, failures, shows, research, thought process, and studio. From career updates, in-process photos, private sketchbook views, digital works, and special acknowledgements, to larger works on paper, discounts, and commissions, my rewards are tiered to offer something for everyone. I hope you will find something of interest and value to you that represents a token of my appreciation!

About Me & My Work:
I’m an award-winning, multi-disciplinary artist and native Texan exploring memory, craft, domesticity, and the current soci-political environment though multiple materials, mediums, and processes. Influenced by a family of outsider artists, writers, quilters, embroiderers, miniaturists, and a research scientist,  my work includes paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, fiber, and mixed media works. My Patreon rewards are geared more toward sharing works on paper.

My subjects range from traditional quilt patterns in encaustic paint interlaced with photographic images of unknown people, to gerrymandered congressional districts rendered in traditional embroidery techniques, to newspapers that have been manipulated to resemble our natural, organic surroundings. Behind the scenes, you'll also see my lesser-known interests in landscapes, figurative work, and other explorations. 

A 11/2018 Houston Art Tribe Interview:


My work has been featured twice in the periodical New American Paintings, and is now part of the public collection of the International Women’s Museum in Marfa, TX. I was honored to be a resident artist at Houston’s Project Row Houses, an award winner at the 2017 Lawndale Big Show and the 2018 Assistance League of Houston Celebrates Texas Art show, and a 2018 participant in the New Texas Talent show at Craighead Green Gallery and the Texas Vignette Art Fair in Dallas, as well as the Artspace111 Regional Juried Exhibition in Ft. Worth, Texas.

I currently have a solo show up at the Galveston Arts Center through January 13th, 2019. I hope you'll join me on Patreon and in person. If you are unable to do either, please consider following me on Instagram: @renluart
