JRenee is internationally known for her reverse glass paintings, or Eglomise, depicting southern lifestyle themes, tropical design, and the life and times in New Orleans, pre- and post-Katrina. She enjoys painting images and scenes that promote thought on issues of social justice, history, and folklore.
She graduated from Xavier University in 1989 with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts. Like many, JRenee was a Katrina evacuee who was forced to move around the country. She eventually settled in Columbia, South Carolina.
The Doctor N. Lee Morris Gallery is located on the second floor of the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation Library.
