René Shoemaker Art

I am an international artist specializing in painting fine art on silk. I earned my BFA from the University of Georgia in 1981 and an MLIS from the University of South Carolina in 1993. After making art in Athens for over 30 years, I now live part time in France and travel frequently for exhibits and inspiration.

Color is my vocabulary and line is the underpinning of my luxurious paintings on silk. Discovering a sense of place through my art is the theme that brings all of my oeuvre together.

Specializing In/Experience

Although painting on silk is my specialty, I enjoy many aspects of art. I create prints, surface pattern designs, home décor, and fashion, as well as fine art.

Description of the art

These original designs are paintings on silk, using dyes on the silk fabric. The colors are luminous and bright. Some of the designs are multi-media pieces that are silk screened with details painted with the dye. Fine art prints enable art lovers to purchase their favorite designs at a fraction of the original price; display them in your home or office or give them to a loved one for a gift with a pop of color and mystery.
