Creative director and owner of Rockin’ R Retreat Center and Rena Cotti Creative Events, Rena has a passion for creating, learning, and teaching. As a former high school teacher with a love of art, making, and crafting… it makes sense that this combination of teaching and creating has evolved into a life of curating experiences as a student and instructor.
So what might Rena be doing at any given moment? Maybe painting a piece of art, making a custom table with her blow torch, cooking a good meal, knitting a scarf, scrapbooking family pics, weaving, paint pouring… She’ll pretty much try her hand at any art or craft and then refine it and teach it to others.
Rena’s absolute favorite thing is curating get-togethers for those who need to replenish their tanks with friendship and creativity. After hosting retreats in many different venues, in 2008, Rena and her husband opened a retreat center where her events are held and they rent out the center to other creative hosts when she is not hosting herself.
