Renée Arts

Renée Estelle Agarwal 

I received my BA in Fine Arts from UCLA in 1974. Since then, I have been inspired by the unique qualities of our natural surroundings through the media of watercolors, acrylics and pastels. Many paintings are completed “en plein air”, working on location to capture the nuances of atmosphere and light conditions on the landscape.

My other specialty is painting portraits of people and the animals they love.

My artwork can be found in numerous private collections, as well as UCSC McHenry Library and the Center for Conscious Living in Santa Cruz.

For the past 32 years, I owned and directed a Montessori school, have taught art to all ages, and tutored elementary school age children. My other interests include singing, playing percussion, photography and gardening.
