About the Artist

Renée Rey hails from New York, and lives and works in SW Florida. Passionate about diversity and creativity, she embraces, in her life and art, the positive power of spirituality, science, music, dance, literature, nature, the richness of her multi-cultural French, Armenian, Jewish, Christian heritage, birthplace of Japan, and the energy, sounds, and sites of people and places of her travels.


Artist's Statement

Let us dance in artistic and poetic dialog...day after day. Rey creates a soul language and unique world vision through a dynamic and intuitive creative power of the mysterious, unexpected, cryptic and rhythmic, telling a story in search of personal identity, diversity, and collective connection between people all around the world, and with nature, engaging you in a visual and emotive dialog.
