Renee began the comic phase of her career working on such titles as Superman at DC Comics and Silver Surfer, Conan The Barbarian and Conan Saga at Marvel, then going on to spearhead the reintroduction of She-Hulk at Marvel as well. She then moved to Topps Comics where she was the editor on "X-Files," "Jurassic Park," "Xena" and "Hercules" and is the co-creator-with Jackie Chan and artist Michael Golden-- of the successful series, "Spartan X" which will be made into a trade paperback this year.
She is also the colorist on hundreds of comics from "The Avengers" to "Spider-man" to "Captain America" among many, many more.
Film work was a natural progression for Renee after this storytelling immersion in comics, and she has since worked on dozens of music videos for Madonna, Seal, Ben Harper and Usher, as well as the feature movies "Rush Hour Two," "Red Dragon ," "To ease the lose," and "Swimming With The Virgin," among others.
In addition to on-going film work, she is the President of Little Eva Ink Publishing and Eva Ink Artist Group, which represents artists and writers in comics, storyboards, fine art painting and more (www.evainkartistgroup.). Renee is also one of the producers of the "Creator Chronicles" DVD series with Woodcrest Productions, featuring interviews with major industry creators such as George Perez, Bill Sienkiewicz, Michael Golden, Joe Jusko, Matt Wagner and many more.
Current projects also include new sketchbooks on Michael Golden, Mark Texeira, Joe Jusko and Nick Cardy.
In her not so abundant free time, she lectures on storytelling, most recently in China, fishes, dances, travels and is also curating several major art exhibits featuring U.S. and European talent.
