I enjoy creating Mixed Media collages that are inspired by our connection to nature, history and the energy that surrounds us all. My vision starts with vintage photos that spark my imagination, as I wonder about the story behind them. I then use layers of handmade altered paper, natural objects and or painting. I have been asked if these photos are my family, which most are not, but I believe we are all connected, so to me these ancestors belong to all of us. The different mediums allow me to explore color and texture in a new way. Every piece becomes a new challenge as I learn and combine different techniques.

I also enjoying making enamel jewelry. I torch fire enamel glass powders onto hand hammered copper. Each piece is unique. For more information, visit www.reneesuich.com.

Early years spent in design were further fostered by time spent working at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Renee Suich now resides in East Tennessee and enjoys experimenting with new media including encaustic work. Different mediums, like encaustic work, allow Suich to explore color and texture in a new way. Every piece becomes a new challenge.
