Hello, I'm Renée Rigdon. 👋

I’m so glad you are here.

My goal in all creative pursuits is to empower people feel less alone while they explore their own internal landscape through creative connection.

About Me

I am nonbinary (they/them). I have been in recovery from alcohol use disorder for four years and counting.
I am a writer. I am an artist. I am a mindful creativity coach.
I am a mom to a singularly amazing human. I am a best friend to THE best friend. I am a grieving widow.
I’m not so much a silly goose as a weird maudlin possum with an abiding love of dad jokes.
I genuinely believe in the power of creativity to hold us together and help us grow and heal through everything that life can throw at us.
I teach self-care crafting and creativity workshops to groups, and offer one-on-one coaching to individuals to maximize our ability to survive in a complicated world. I hope you’ll join me.

What I Do

Classes that put creativity in reach

I combine beginner-friendly art and craft instruction with mindfulness techniques that transforms classes into spaces of creativity and connection.

Words that shine a light 💡on tenderness

I write poetry and prose that illuminates my path through this human experience as a queer autistic widow in a big, loud world.

Illustrations that help you feel something

Primarily through the subject of robots, I create illustrations that provide access to the way emotions present themselves in our bodies and spirits.

👪 Community Building

Need help with your volunteer engagement program at your nonprofit? I am available for consulting.

Cozy Vibes

I am a multimedia artist, primarily focused on fiber arts. Everything I make is designed to want to be touched and interacted with. I am a believer that perceiving art does not have to be a “hands off” experience. I love to create works that can be held, played with, or changed as the viewer wishes.
