Rena Haveson has been painting for 25 years. She began her education at Boston University studying Art and Art History. From 1988 to 1996 she owned and operated an art gallery in Pittsburgh, PA., displaying works by contemporary American painters, including her own.

Strong color and passion for life are evident in her work. Subject matter is often expressionistic, with dream-like qualities. She often uses a palette knife or collage techniques to enrich the canvas. This is to allow the viewer to constantly wander in and out of reality while perceiving the painting.

The Faces series is a collection of feelings and emotions that lend themselves to an abstract vision. The paint is built up with layers of acrylic and oil and then it is painted over again so that there is a sense of mystery of what was before, beneath the layers of paint
