Welcome to the neighborhood. Nice to meet you.
Renata Davis is a multidisciplinary artist focusing primarily in illustration, comics, and animation.
Renata looks at beginnings, what it’s like to be new. How we continue to learn and grow and how we start over, again and again. Renata views how we communicate through binoculars, up close but still at a distance.
Renata received their BFA in animation in 2016 from MassArt. While in school they focused on independent filmmaking within the animation industry and some of their films screened at festivals internationally. Currently Renata is working more in comics and illustration than animation, but the study of motion and duration are always informing their work.
Renata is an active member of Wishbone Collective in Winooski, VT.
Renata drinks black coffee and collects tiny plastic toys.

Below is a collection of self portraits from almost every year of my life. Some emulate the style of a favorite artist at the time, some are from direct observation, some are from photographs. They are in chronological order starting in 1999 when I was 5 years old. This seems to introduce me better than words sometimes.
