Renee Mak

Artist Trainer

Renée joined team Pinot as an artist in early 2014 at our Des Moines studio. She fell in love with the concept of bringing art to the masses in an upscale, fun, authentic studio environment and her experience owning/operating her own art studio business helped her quickly become the studio manager and finally, a Pinot's Palette Artist Trainer. Her enthusiasm and love for all things art makes her a great addition to the team and she loves sharing the Pinot's Palette culture with new studio owners and artists. Prior to Pinot's Palette, Renée established herself as an artist by creating and selling more than 500 pieces of unique art, teaching numerous classes and workshops, painting live at events and giving inspirational talks to small business and women's groups. She's constantly inspired by her three children and creates from her heart ...every single time. Most recently, she was a keynote speaker at Inspired 2015 and continues to sell artwork in small coffee shops and privately. Renée's dreams for the future include moving to Southern California, continuing to create and sell her own artwork, teach creative workshops abroad and owning a Pinot's Palette of her own!
