overview

“My creative soul was inspired by a desire to evoke my emotions at the deepest level with vibrantly colored swirls that exude off the canvas and into the heart of the viewer.”

Art enthusiasts say her use of oils creates a thick buttery appearance similar to ribbon candy. Renea uses a pallet knife to blend a variety of colors as she moves the paint around the canvas. The effect creates a 3-D appearance as she shapes and contours the paint. Her desire is that her art will evoke emotion and leave the viewer with a lasting impression.

about the artist

Renea Menzies’ abstract art has bold influences that are inspired by many facets of her individualism. While she is a native Texan, she has traveled the globe to some of the most exotic locations in the world. Her sense of style is heavily influenced by the many cultures she has had a chance to experience.

Renea’s sculpted oil paintings display the intricate marriage of technique and color that brings her work to life and inspires movement of the imagination in a textured oasis. Her artistic abilities as part painter and part sculptor are truly amazing and evident in the complexity of her art. Each swirl she creates takes the viewer on a journey of extraordinary proportion.

An expression that captivates and inspires Renea’s personal life as well as her art is by Maya Angelou “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
