Renee M. Anderson is the Owner, Innovator, and Executive Sorceress who utilizes her specialized background and magic to oversee her latest entreprenurial endeavor, Art on You Studios - Tattoos, Piercings, & Needful Things. Implementing her spooktacular visions throughout the establishment is what gives the place its ladylike aspects while maintaining its novel aesthetics.
Renee was born in St. Louis, but has spent the majority of her life in the Salt Lake Valley. Being driven, organized, and creative are all qualities that come from the influence of Renee's mom who drew upon those same characteristics to be successful in her own life. Renee, who was formerly well known as "The Dark Queen", applied her ingenuity as a Seamstress to establish and manage her former company, Dark Queen Apparel which customized ladies' heavy metal and horror clothing. Her experience with this unique operation prepared her to effectively Own and Oversee Art on You Studios. Recently, she has been inspired and is again applying her creative talents and skills to manifest all new seamstress works as The Queen of Halloween. She is creating unqiue, sewn works from custom, high quality purses to unique pixie capes and one-of-a-kind men's bowling style shirts with horror, witchy,and geeky prints. Renee has been published in periodicals such as Salt Lake City Weekly, The Ninth Gate Magazine, and Rue Morgue.
Renee, along with her husband, Storm spearheads the "Halloween in Summer Festival" which attracted 20,000 festival goers over the course of the day in 2016. She is also a Witch in The Church of Satan, and is President of the Magna Town Council.
When she's not governing the activities at Art on You Studios, Renee loves spending time with her husband, cats, daughters, granddaughter, reading as much as possible, attending an occasional heavy metal show, and of course watching horror movies and tv shows from Bram Stoker's Dracula to Ash vs Evil Dead.
