Rene Wheaton

Rene enjoys working in a variety of mediums and believes there is a creative spirit in everyone. She studied Art History, drawing, and pottery at college, as she pursued her Bachelor's of Arts in English. Just as she believes everyone has a hidden creative spirit, Rene likes to find creative uses for ordinary things. In a throwaway society, she likes to find uses for things that might otherwise be doomed to the dump. Her work never feels complete to her if it doesn’t include at least a little something from the past. Her art, under the name Attic Rescue
League, has been featured at a few local galleries. She teaches art at Jackson School of the Arts. She likes to help her students tap into their artistic side and hopes to inspire everyone to give “junk” a second chance through reuse.
