Renee Walden - New Zealand Artist

Hello, I'm Renee Walden, and I paint the world around me.

 

Usually I paint outside and then I take those ideas into the studio to create finished works. These finished paintings can be fairly representational of the scenes I was inspired by, or can take on a far more abstract form.


I've been lucky enough to paint all over the world, capturing memories and notes through hundreds of sketches over the years. Painting outside allows me to make a very strong connection to the places I visit and the people who live there. The stories stored in my sketchbook and later told through my finished paintings are very important to me - the sights, sounds, smells, emotions and people I've met are all there on paper or canvas.

 

For the last 7 years I've had the joy of teaching others to paint, giving them the tools to put their stories on paper too.
