About Renia

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are” ―e.e. cummings

“Each of my works has a unique story, inviting you in…. Art lasts forever ­- a luxury, an indulgence. It is not a temporary luxury like food or wine, clothes or shoes. You grow up with the art you have in your house. It goes with you, and you don’t create your art collection all at once, it evolves over time. Art is a time stamp of a place and time in your life. You’ll never feel remorse after surrounding yourself with art you love'” ― Renia

Renia was born in New Zealand to a Polish immigrant family in 1970. They moved to Australia in the late 1970s. After completing her schooling, university and Chartered Accounting studies in NSW, she moved to Europe with her husband in 1995 where they travelled and worked in Switzerland and Germany for 15 years.

Renia and her family moved to Perth, Australia in 2011.  To take her mind off missing her friends and life in Europe, Renia finally leaped into a lifelong passion for art and began painting classes. She now has a studio at home where she creates and teaches in a beautiful garden atmosphere.

The aesthetics and creativity of her mother Teresa have always inspired her to never stop trying new things. Renia remembers: “a childhood full of beautiful home-cooked international food, my father would joke ‘never the same dish twice, especially if he said he liked it’, superbly sewn clothes and furnishings and a zest for craft and colour- whether making her own leadlight windows, restoring furniture or creating flourishing and colourful gardens wherever they lived.”
