Renee Nault

Renee Nault

Renee Nault is a Canadian artist, illustrator, and graphic novelist.

She is known for her vivid watercolor and ink illustrations.

Renee was born in Vancouver and later moved to Victoria. Growing up near the ocean, she was influenced by the languid weightlessness and bright colours of underwater landscapes. Later she connected these ideas with the "floating world" of Japanese Ukiyo-e prints which interested her with their repeating patterns and shapes. To this she brings a very personal edge, a cryptic symbolism and a dark sense of humor.



Renee loves to travel, and she has spent long stretches of time in Europe, Asia, and Africa. 

Renee’s work has appeared in books, magazines, newspapers and advertising around the world. She has completed work on a graphic novel adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian classic, The Handmaid's Tale. The book will be released on March 26th 2019.
