About

Hi and welcome to Simply Renew

My name is René, I am a wife, mom, upcycler, baker, painter & gift maker! 

As a child of Africa, I’ve seen and experienced hardship. I cherish the ingenuity of the African people to make something extraordinary from something deemed worthless. This constantly remains in my thoughts and from where I draw inspiration. Simply Renew was born from my passion to give everyone and everything in life a second chance.

I upcycle furniture, create unique handmade gifts and decorative items, which are often influenced by my South African roots or the pretty English Countryside, where I now live.

I believe that we were all created to be creative and that we find time for friends, fellowship, reflection and healing in the process of making something beautiful. So, I love to share my skills by running creative skills workshops. I am also a Folkit! Ambassador and run folk art workshops.
