Renée Bovet was born in Montréal, Quebec, Canada. She completed her studies in fine arts in 1978 and then plunged heart and soul into a highly refined means of expression: painting on silk. She is now a master at her craft and, though her style bears the mark of maturity, it has lost none of its spontaneity. Her works, brimming with joy and vivacity, have retained that freshness wich first caught the public's eye.
Winner of the Salon des Métiers d'Art' Public Choice Award, this accomplished artist paints vibrant outdoor scenes in a most remarkable way, using silk as her canvas and special liquid dyes to capture the light and life of every image she chooses to immortalize.
