Hi, I'm René. First I was an artist. Then I became a mom. Then, as it turned out, I was an autism mom. Now I'm an artist again.
(I'm still a mom.)
This is a place to figure it all out. Or maybe not 'figure it all out' so much as 'sit back and watch the cage match'.
Fruityfantastica* can be roughly divided into two categories: marvellous stuff of all kinds done by other people, and my own work.
If you want to see other people's stuff, you can go here: other people are wonderful.
My studio work, bits of writing & other oddments are here: I made this.
To cut out the nonsense and go straight to the studio, use this shortcut: studio work.
I'm also a contributor at the Hedge Society. What is a Hedge Society, you ask? It's a group of friends paying attention to things that are hopeful, beautiful, silly, tasty, helpful, interesting, infuriating, ordinary, and sometimes y.

*Fruity Fantastica was my Tetris high score name. I was a pretty good Tetris player, and if you think that's bluster just go ahead and ask Meaty Magnifico about it. Later, Fruityfantastica became a code word for my potential to be something better than I was. Now it's a hairshirt I wear online to remind myself that I am also ridiculous.
