Black Bean, 2023






Reneesha also known as rnwulf is a self taught North Carolina based Artist. After the birth of her son, Reneesha started creating art full time in 2019.


The Steady Head, 2023

A principle theme in Reneesha’s work is her celebration of the consequence of life and nature in relation to the female body. She uses her personal experience to highlight the internal and external effects of childbirth particularly the physical changes that occur from breastfeeding. Reneesha often explores and showcases her own perception of life based on personal experience.

To express these raw emotions Reneesha works in different mediums including acrylic, oil, pencil, colored pencil, and oil pastels. Within her artwork you’ll notice various colors, gestural lines, conceptual poses, and deformities that play with the idea of inclusion and what is real versus imaginary.


Follow Through, 2023/The Rock on the Right, 2023

Upcoming projects closely relate to her journey of self discovery against motherhood. This series loosely explores the experience of battle, disconnection, and insecurities. New works will also employ the use of mixed media to enhance the chaotic nature of the mind as well as present a conceptual aspect to the female form.
