Australian artist Renee Mitchell’s finely-honed line work references a detailed knowledge of the animals she lovingly portrays. Her intimate connection with the creatures allows her to capture them mid-movement: posed to move onto the dance floor, off the page.
A passion for the medium of pen and ink along with a love of freedom and movement are evident in Renee’s popular Scratch Series. This series captures the air, land and sea creature subjects with fine detail and lose line-work, while the overpainted acrylics offers an wonderfully contemporary mixed media spin on the traditional portrait. A life-long love affair with pens resulted in her appointment as an Artline Pen Ambassador, with her works receiving national acclaim as part of the ongoing campaign. Her works are regularly exhibited in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland and are held by many private collectors.
