Renné grew up in Nepean, Ontario. For as long as she can remember, she has loved to draw and paint. She has also always loved the outdoors, and reading books. But when someone asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she always replied “an artist”.

After some graphic design training, Renné decided what she really wanted to be was an illustrator. Several years later, she has illustrated many award winning books for children. She enjoys reading a manuscript and using her imagination to translate the story into pictures. She combines her colours and shapes on the page using primarily watercolours and coloured pencils on paper.

Renné now works in her home studio in St. Thomas, Ontario. Renné Benoit
