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. 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 and she drew upon those same characteristics to be successful in her own life. Renee, formerly well known as "The Dark Queen", applied her ingenuity as a Seamstress to establish and manage her now retired 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. Later, she applied her creative talents and skills to manifest all new seamstress works as The Queen of Halloween. She was 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.
Currently, Witch Renee maintains her position as Co-Owner of Art on You Studios and does most of her work for the shop behind the scenes. During the days Renee is a proud Mail Carrier with USPS.
Along with her husband, Storm, she spearheaded the "Halloween in Summer Festival" which attracted 20,000 festival goers over the course of the day in 2016, 2017, and the final festival in 2018. She is also a Witch in The Church of Satan, and former President of the Magna Town Council.
Witch Renee is a proud mother of three daughters (all grown), grandmother of two granddaughters, and best friend to three feline familiars. When she's not up to her eyeballs with responsiblities at USPS and Art on You Studios, Renee loves spending time with her husband, reading as much as possible, listening to records, attending an occasional Heavy Metal show, enjoying a tasty drink and food at the local pub, and of course watching Horror movies and TV shows from Bram Stoker's Dracula to Stranger Things.
