Biography


 
 Renee Faure is a native of Manhattan who grew up surrounded by art and artists. Her grandfather was the prominent American Impressionist, Edmund W.

She also spent two years at the Boston Museum School of Art and another year working in the printmaking department at San Diego State College with Paul Lundgren and Marta Palau.
