About Renée Anne


Renée Anne Bouffard-McManus has been drawing, painting and crafting since she was a little girl. She became more serious about her painting in 2008. She is a self-taught artist, born and raised in Northern Ontario, Canada and has fond memories of learning to draw and mix colours with her mother and aunts. She married her childhood love, Patrick McManus and they have 3 children, William, Felix and Mollie. They currently live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada where she works from her light-filled home studio. 

Renée Anne invites you to browse through collections of her original watercolour paintings and note cards. She paints vaporous waterscapes and landscapes with a sense of movement and veiled emotion, as well as simple beauties of nature like feathers, birds and florals with whimsy and mood. 

Renée Anne's work has been used by designers Emily Henderson and Jillian Harris & seen on HGTV and the BBC. Her work has been featured on popular sites like Apartment Therapy, A Cup of Jo, and Poppytalk. She has been named Top 25 Etsy Mom's by Babble and her work has been spotted in NY Times' bestselling book "STYLED", Babiekins and Lecker magazines.
