Renee is a lifelong, self-taught artist and photographer, inspired to create works of art from the soul. She is also a Reiki Master, runs sacred cacao (raw chocolate) heart-opening ceremonies, and is a professional tarot reader, often reading at private events. When collaborating with people, whether in a photo shoot or a custom painting, she loves tapping into the creative universe to capture their beautiful essence of being through visual expression.
Although Renee’s photography work tends to lean toward creative, spiritual and visionary art, she is also available to work on family, business or commercial projects. A large body of her photography work is available as royalty-free stock photography at iStockphoto.com/renphoto.
Renee has also created an Oracle deck with her art and photography which can be found at OracleTarot.Wordpress.com. She plans to release 2-3 more decks this year (2017).
“With an artist soul, I choose to see things differently and live creatively. I am open to transforming, shifting paradigms & realities…To explore human potential and consciousness… To see imperfections as perfection… And then express it all through my life & artwork in many mediums.” ~Renee Sarasvati
Renee Adora Sarasvati was born in California in 1979, and raised in Utah. Renee is a freelance and commercial photographer for iStock Photo and Getty Images. Renee discovered her passion for photography in 2002 when she picked up her first digital camera. By 2004, she had turned her focus full time to commercial photography.
As a life long self taught artist, she enjoys creating powerful images that strike an emotion. She has spent years developing her own eye catching style. Her love for many other art mediums often influences her photography work. She is also a talented painter, sculptor, potter, and designer. Renee states, “Art & Photography are some of my greatest passions. I surrounded my life by it and focus on it every day! I love working with people, and creating more than just a portrait.”
I currently have a GoFundMe campaign open to raise money for more gear (which was lost in a divorce): https://www.gofundme.com/photography-gear
Renee came into the world very clear, knowing that she was to be an artist. She started oil painting at a very young age, and to this day, has very little art school training. She took some art lessons at 12 years old, and then an oil painting, and design class in college. Once she figures out the money flow, and has opportunity, she would love to expand her art by studying under art masters.
“There have been many times where I am spending my last pennies on a paint brush… Oh the romance of a starving artist, lol… art is a beautiful meditation, deep listening, and is often channeled from spirit. It wouldn’t matter if I never sold a painting, they would still be stacking up in my house. Art is definitely my favorite thing about this human experience.”
