Renee Laverne Rose – Chicago, IL
I grew up on the Southside of Chicago, in the Morgan Park neighborhood. As a child I always had a curious nature and relished exploring the world. I would describe myself as a renaissance woman from continuing to expand my knowledge of arts and culture. I always saw myself in relation to the arts as the observer not the performer. Yet viola! My life has been positively redefined through visuals arts and I have found more inner peace, tranquility and great clarity. When I open my eyes in the morning, as an artist the world now appears more vivid, full of marvelous colors, and intricate details.
At this stage in my life success for me is traveling my journey as an artist with integrity, trust, and love. I go forth in peace not knowing where my journey shall take me but I am fully engaged in the process of learning my craft. I will continue to promote visual arts to be recognized by the general public as beneficial to the well-being of mankind. Only through this path and inner strength can I be free to paint on my canvas of life.
