About Renée and Dreams After All

New beginnings are on the horizon. The love is pouring in and the world feels restored with hope and heart. For what would we be without the beauty of our souls and the giving that comes from the heart and sharing it with others? This has always been a big part of my dream. Give more than you get, love everyone, for we are not all given the same beginnings, and help whenever you can. I was born with the heart of an artist. Raised by a mother who always shared her love for art and music, who always encouraged me to pursue everything creative, she inspired my very being. My mother was an elementary school teacher who shared her gifts with all of her students through art projects practically every single day. I actually have paintings that she painted as a teenager that I cherish. Having been born and raised in Los Angeles, California, my days were inspired by the coastal beauty, evenings filled with music.  Constantly singing and writing songs, my memories are of harmony and prose.

Now, endlessly inspired to paint and continuing to write, I am grateful to be able to continue my artistic journey. With love and passion.

I give thanks to my mother, a trained artist, who introduced me to the world of art - and I never looked back. She shared her love of specific artists with me at every opportunity she got. We explored museums together and she taught me about various art forms. Most importantly, she encouraged me to immerse myself in art projects and “everything creative.” My father was a tenor and had a gorgeous voice which must be why I was fascinated with music as well. I began singing at 18 months old and eventually built a career as a singer songwriter, starting in my teens. Early on, I became interested in creating greeting cards, both the designs and message. And the rest is history. Initially I made cards for my friends, but it evolved into a career as I noticed that people were drawn to my art and uplifting messages.

Like most artists, I started from the ground floor, selling my cards door-to-door! I am happy to say that over the last 12 years, my cards have been marketed to Whole Foods Market and several other gift stores with great success. I absolutely love creating products that people can enjoy and use. I am never short of ideas or words, and I continue to delve into new art forms as well as other products every chance I get. My greatest joy comes from sharing with others and hoping to touch someone’s heart.

Thank you for visiting my shop!

Sincerely,
Renée
