About Ren:
Ren Crawford has lived in the Shenandoah Valley for many years. Her abstract paintings are spread far and wide, from Japan to Australia, as well as all of the US. Her professional career began at St John’s Gallery, Wilmington, NC. After the 1960’s she traveled to Japan and exhibited her work there. Next she traversed the US from Hawaii to North Carolina, leaving paintings in many collections. An octogenarian who continues to surprise viewers, Ren’s lively art continues to grow in followers.
