ABOUT RENEE

Officially: Narrm Land (Melbourne, Australia) based Contemporary Wildlife and Pet Portrait Artists. 

Unofficially: A Scribbler

Self-taught artist, Renee Mitchells finely-honed line work reference a detailed knowledge of technical drawing combined with a love of expressive line work. 

A passion for pens and love of freedom and movement can be seen in Mitchell’s largest body of works. In her Scratch Series animals and sea creatures alike show fine detail and lose line working together in harmony to bring animals to life. A portion of these works combine pen with acrylic paint offering a mixed media contemporary take on the traditional portrait.
