Renee Rossi Banyay MFA '10


“My work is a culmination of ideas that continue to resonate through me,” says Renee Rossi of Danbury “Ten years ago, I was asked to construct a place where my soul could find comfort- a ‘Spirit Dwelling’. In creating this sanctuary the accumulation of found objects, colors, and pattern relationships quietly guides me. I intuitively orchestrate and embrace clutter which in turn inspires spaces built by natural observation (what is really there) and heartfelt invention (what I imagine in the space).  I welcome the viewer into this space by sharing artifacts of my spirit’s identity with the intent to communicate an intimate connection that triggers the viewer’s personal memories.”

Renee received her BFA in painting from the University of CT.  She participated in the New York Studio School drawing marathon.

After graduation she did an Independent study in Rome, Italy with fellow classmate Jill Sarver, traveling and painting through June and July.  She then took part in the "Small Works Invitational" at the Blue Mountain Gallery, NYC (Aug. 2010)

Renee married Stephen Banyay in  Feb. 2011, and relocated to Milford, CT.  She is learning the trade of Floral Design at local Small Business of the Year Beachwood Florist.
