About

RennerLaDifference-A Work in Progress

I have an eclectic selection of fascinating fine art, antiques and collectibles! We welcome both beginning & advanced collectors. Whatever I find fascinating and hope you do too!
My shop started in 1990 as a brick-and-mortar at supply/custom framing shop in York, PA. After marriage and kids came along, I gave up the shop to sell antiques online. Of course technology has changed greatly since then. Now I offer my artwork and still sell antiques online. Etsy is an enjoyable and energizing path for me, and I am very excited to be showing my work to the world along with so many other talented artists and artisans. My education is 1986 BA Studio Arts/Art History Univ. of Pittsburgh. Member Pittsburgh Pastel Artists League. Artists I studied with and mentors include but not limited to Rhoda Shapiro, Joseph Shepler, Ken Batista, Girts Purins, Paul Glabicki, Donna Hollen-Bolgrem, James P. Nelson, Philip Rostek, and more. Other artists who have had considerable influence on my work include Van Gogh, Cezanne, Wolf Kahn, Edward Hopper, Degas, Kathe Kollwitz, German Expressionists, Japanese woodblocks, among others.
Everything offered in the shop is either vintage made by others or my original artwork and designs all made at home in my studio. Sometimes I might offer t-shirts (screen printed by a shop) featuring my original designs as I am able to do so. My son has notecard designs and custom Bionicle creations listed as well which are marked as his. My daughter has started offering her Manga creations in my shop also.
So grab a favorite beverage and enjoy browsing!

*This is a poetry book "Music From a Farther Room" by John Hughes recently published. My painting, "Hallway", is featured on the cover. It is available through Amazon. This would be an awesome gift for anyone who enjoys poetry!
