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, and historical illustration.

I've been popping up around the Pacific Northwest in places such as the Portland Saturday Market, the Portland Night MarketCrafty Wonderland, Renegade Craft Fair, Urban Craft Uprising, etc. for the past five years. You can also find my prints in some really great shops in Portland and beyond (please see my stockists page).
