René’s emphasis is sculpture and metalsmithing. She merges unique materials and methods and has developed some unconventional techniques while exploring merging organic materials with glass, concrete, metal and unusual materials. A recent collaboration with UW geologists, botanists and a paleobotanist has inspired “Science Loves Art”, a concept that engages the public with art and science. René’s artwork has been exhibited in juried fine art shows and exhibitions in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Boulder, Colorado, Denver, Colorado, Steamboat Springs, Colorado, Laramie, Wyoming and Austin, Texas.
