Renee Luna Bebeau

Renee Luna Bebeau is a versatile artist who cannot be pinned down to one medium as variety drives her practice.
As a henna artist, she engages with the community and uses art as a way of connecting. As a painter, she is focused on the impermanence of life and of appreciation for the present moment through wilting bouquets or compost scraps.
Luna is also a curator and instructor who lives and works in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She shares a studio with her husband, Todd Mrozinski in The Nut Factory in the Riverwest neighborhood.

 

Books she is reading now include How to Change your Mind by Michael Pollan and Organumics: an Epigenetic Reframing of Consciousness, Life, and Evolution by Ben L.Callif.

BeBeau also works in other mediums including paint. To hear more about her work, listen to the complete interview. […]
