Renee was born in Mount Holly, N C and now lives in Stanley, NC not far from where she grew up. She is the mother of two  and grandmother of five. Having a long time interest in pottery she took lessons at JS Pottery and wuickly became hooked on clay.  After retiring from her job as a teacher's assistant she  converted  her father's woodworking shop in Mount Holly into a studio. She named it Clay House Pottery because her father had built  her a  wonderful playhouse when she was a young girl. That is where she first started making mud pies!

Renee makes functional and decorative pottery by handbuilding and wheelthrowing  as well as a combination of both. She uses  mid- range clay fired in an electric kiln.

Nature is the source of inspiration for most of Renee's work. 

Renee in 2006 was awarded an Honorable Mention at the "Visual Harvest" art exhibit sponsored by the Gaston County Art  Guild. She won third place at the Southern Arts Society show "I Am Woman" in 2007 and has shown her work in many other art  exhibits.
