With many years of experience in healthcare, Rena Hottinger has consistently balanced her career with a passion for the arts. She attended a certificate program in Floral Design at the NY Botanical Gardens. Nowadays, if she is not creating floral bouquets with real flowers, she is painting them. As a result, she is being recognized for her strong floral paintings. Rena has worked as a creative designer as well as volunteering for ArtWorks, a foundation in NJ created to bring art expression to chronically ill children.
Rena utilizes multiple media for free-style self-expression including acrylic, watercolor, oil, soft pastel, charcoal, ink, collage, clay, photography and floral design. Appreciating Buddhist philosophy, she explains that “creating art” is a virtue of wholesomeness, an exploration of truth, and contributes to a meaningful life that benefits all. Rena contends that everything happens in the moment—including creating and appreciating art.
An award winning painter & photographer, her work is usually on exhibit somewhere in Pike County PA, Wayne County PA, Monroe County PA, and both the Delaware and Hudson Valleys in PA and NY. “During the pandemic stay at home, I spent some time ‘going inwards’ — thinking meditating reading & attending online classes. Painting with inspiration from Master Artist Georgia O’Keeffe, recently completed ‘Blooming Grove after O’Keeffe’ … Georgia’s paintings are the epitome of BEAUTY for me & studying her work helps me keep a happy & peaceful mind!”
