Harrisburg artist, photographer and graphic designer Dionn Renee.

Harrisburg artist and photographer Dionn Renee isn't a stranger to fame. Maya Angelou has hung one of Dionn's paintings in her office. Oprah loved the one Dionn sent to her. And she's photographed celebrities at events.

It was at the last minute in her senior year of high school that she decided against being a doctor and chose to pursue what she'd always been passionate about: art. From the time she was a toddler drawing with her mom after dinner, Dionn has always gravitated towards the arts. Today she paints, does photography and graphic design. These skills have led her to work with a record label doing CD covers, t-shirt designs, photo shoots, paintings and murals.

She grew up in Middletown and has spent time in Philadelphia, Rome, Los Angeles and Atlanta among other places. She now resides in the Harrisburg area. More of work can be found on her Facebook page:
