Renee Powell lives in Oregon’s wine country, which is where she draws inspiration for her art. Powell incorporates recycled materials into each piece—painting on old doors, moldings and wine barrel staves. The staves are very durable, painted in oils and sealed with varnish. Powell’s work is available for sale at Red Hills Market and Torii Mor Winery (both in Dundee) and Rain Dance Marketplace in Newberg. If you’ve ever stayed at the Alison Inn and Spa you may have also seen her work in some of the rooms there.

To Renee art has always been a big part of her life. From graphic designer, muralist, interior designer, art teacher to fine artist. If she is not doing some form of art, she feels a void within her.

Renee graduated with honors from the Colorado Institute of Art, and has taken advanced art classes at Colorado State University
