An Artist Among Us

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Renee Woods Stramel ‘82 works for World Art Group, an art publishing company in Richmond, VA. The company sells artwork all over the world on a wholesale basis to framing companies, furniture companies and big interior design houses. She currently has a piece that was licensed by Anthropologie as a tapestry!

She writes, “Burgundy taught me how to see, but more importantly, it taught me how to be curious. It lets me explore new media and techniques at work and has lead to the innovation and development of new products. I really think it is my most important quality. So much of what I do comes down to basic problem solving and having the skills to think creatively. My constant striving to explore and discover keeps those skills sharp. My curiosity sets me apart in a very competitive world, and that started with being a Burgundy Kid."
