About Renee Hazen:

In 2017 I made a New Year’s resolution to paint. I picked up some acrylics and decided to give them a try. I fell in love with using vibrant color and working with paint. I gravitated towards painting animals and the challenge of capturing their spirit.

In October of 2017 I took the big leap and left my corporate job of 20 years and decided to pursue art full time. I started with a single painting of a cow and now have over 22 animals in my collection. To share my work, I’ve translated each original painting to cards, magnets, and prints, and sewn them into pillows. I hope my creations bring you as much joy as they’ve brought to me.


Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital is excited to combine several of our passions: the Arts, community, and youth development.

Since Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital opened its doors, we have demonstrated a commitment to the local Arts community through thoughtfully curated shows.
