I was recently honored to be chosen as a Featured Artist on the Manhattan Arts International website. The website was started in 2000, but the history of Manhattan Arts International started years before.
Founder and director Renee Phillips has an impressive background in the arts, starting with schooling at the Art Student’s League in NYC. During the time that she was studying painting, Renee got interested in the curatorial aspects of the art world. As a result, she has curated over 60 exhibitions. She is also an art critic and a member of the International Association of Art Critics. Her essays and articles have appeared in numerous arts magazines.
One of Renee Phillips’ passions is in helping artists move their art careers forward. And one of the ways she achieves this goal is through Manhattan Art International. For 17 years, Renee Phillips and her company published Manhattan Arts International, a full-color magazine devoted to promoting under recognized artists. In 1999 the magazine was shifted to an online website which continues the mission of the original magazine. One of the main focuses of the website is the Featured Artist Program.
“We are a creative community of art professionals dedicated to promoting and rewarding artistic excellence through juried and curated art programs. Our editorial coverage is international. We present new informative and inspirational articles about art events, influential art world leaders and under-recognized creative visionaries” according to the website.

Thank you Renee. You are so kind—and your opinion means so much to me!
