I'm Renee Staeck, an artist and illustrator based in Portland Oregon.
Drawing and painting have been the main loves of my life. Over the last decade, my paintings have shifted from larger scale oils to small scale gouache on paper. Watercolor, ink, coffee, and gold-leaf make regular appearances as well.
My work is inspired by travels and dreams, combined with a love of design, eastern art, historical illustration, and the lush landscapes of Oregon.
