About Rene

rene.art@gmail.com  503-890-9668

René Eisenbart’s art-making which started in childhood has developed into a multi-faceted career, including 25 years as artist for The Oregonian where she created weekly botanical illustrations. Hundreds of her paintings have been published in the Homes & Gardens section and the book, “Plant This” by NPR correspondent Ketzel Levine.

Now Rene paints in her classroom studio, set in the Tualatin Mountains near Portland. Reinterpreting the human form or quintessential plants and creatures of the Northwest, she thrives on experimentation. Her colorful watercolor work is often woven with acrylic patterning or texture while unique marbled or stamped papers are transformed as exquisite collaged creatures. These expressive paintings, interlaced with deeper symbolic meaning, invite the viewer to construct their own narrative.

Rene teaches locally and leads painting workshops in exotic locations such as Tuscany and Croatia while panning future trips to Costa Rica and Greece. She encourages each person’s unique artistic expression, creating a safe, supportive environment for growth and experimentation. Read more about Rene’s process on her blog.
