Art is a family affair, her parent and sister are painters, and another sister works with clay. Rene currently is receiving instruction from Tico in Taos.
Rene is very excited about being selected to participate in Open Studio and sees it as a great opportunity to learn a new skill and market her work on the information super highway.
