Constance Renken was born south of Hamburg, Germany in 1974. Since 1993, she has created more than 150 paintings with acrylic on canvas and paper. Her early works include figurative paintings such as hearts and flowers as well as portraits and nudes. Bright colors reflecting enthusiasm and joy are characteristic for Constance's paintings. She receives the inspiration for her colorful art through cosmopolitan impressions and the emotions of her inner life. She lived and worked in New York City for almost five years. In 2012 she moved back to Hamburg, Germany, where she currently works. Constance's paintings depict abstract images of nature. Her work has been shown in many group exhibitions in New York, including Ceres Gallery (Chelsea), Artists Space Gallery (SoHo) and Alpan Gallery (Long Island) among others. Her work was also exhibited at Poster Galerie and Farbpalette in Hamburg, Germany. Major solo exhibitions include Deutsche Bank VIP Lounge at Volkswagen Arena in Wolfsburg, Germany and Lambert in Hamburg, Germany.
