Before painting, teaching, and selling art, Ree owned a successful decorative painting/interior design business and became a Master Faux Painter and Muralist.  Today, she brings these techniques to practical use on the canvas. Her love of texture, color, and pattern developed when she lived in Italy and Greece during young adulthood.  Memories of patina and worn plaster on the walls of the villages was imprinted upon her soul, and she recreates their elegance and grace whenever  possible.
