A primarily self taught artist, Renee Koijane has been more exploring the use of oils in her art on and off since the late 90's.  She gained some foundation through various classes taken at the San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco State and Chicago's Lill Street School. Her current body of work embraces color, simplicity of form and thought, with nostalgia and the human figure mostly her muse.  Born and raised in a small town in upstate New York, Koijane moved to California after high school to attend UC Santa Barbara and is now deeply rooted in Lake Tahoe where she is raising her boys with her wonderfully supportive husband.
