Seeing art in everyday life
Introduction

Renuko Style is a place for creative inspiration. Let's talk photography - portraits and still life and travel photography. Let's add layers and textures and mess with our images. Let's make art! 
Our very being compels us to create things. It is the means by which we make sense of the world. I invite you to share with me how you 'see art in everyday life.'
