Renée Tay is an extra-ordinarily talented artist from Southern California, to whom the inner visions are a gift from Invisible and from that mystery dawns the inspirations of her creative expression, her paintings. She is a painter of Mystical Pointillist-Visionary and Fantastic Realism. Only at the age of 17, her painting was to be found in the San Diego Museum of Art. Her father worked for Scripps Institute of Oceanography and ocean has always been an important part of her being. 9th generation grand-daughter of Mayflower's Miles Standish, Renée grew up like a mermaid in the Pacific Ocean eating abalone and lobster and many of her painting is clear reminiscence of her fantasy and creative imagination about fairy or mermaid like mysterious luminous feminine beings. Sometime they appear in Renée's canvas as Sea Princess, sometime as Butterfly Fairy Princess or Little Wood Fairy. Renée Tay's stylistic use of vibrant spots and dots, mixed with her deep tap roots in folk art traditions, influenced primarily by the folk arts of Russia, Europe and Mexico. She is also impassioned by the intricacy of Persian and East Indian miniatures. Deliberately abandoning structured rules, her paintings speak most wittily from a surprising place - the invisible. This hidden energy burst forth in every painting of her. Born in California in 1960 and trained both as a fine and commercial artist, Renée entertained various careers such as dresser-wardrobe for the opera and traveling Broadway show, art studio manager, worked for Disney, Manager-Buyer in the Symphony, farm store, fish hatchery and cos tumed for Mattel. In California, she has been exhibited in San Diego, Laguna and Newport Beach. Also in Las Vegas, Nevada and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Resident Artist for Fiesta De Reyes in Old Town San Diego State Historic Park since 2006.
