Renata Vigoda had been an artist for as long as she can remember. She has explored the virtual litany of arts through academic and informal classes developing her skills and love of art. She paints both abstract and representational art primarily in acrylics but also some oils. She has taught art classes to adults in her community for the last eight years as well as instructing small groups. Her paintings have been sold in both galleries and online. Glass has always been a fascinating element for her and she has been working with dichroic fused glass for many years. Her jewelry is distinctive for both design and unique wire wrapping. Her work has been in galleries, shows and on websites. Ceramics has been a long time interest and study so she has come back to it with mostly hand built creations. Her ceramics are often whimsical and decorative as well as being functional. Her charity contribution, for several years, has include painting ceramic auction items for the Empty Bowls project. Renata spends as much time in her studio creating art as life and puppies will allow.
