Renso Tamse (1974) who was born and brought up in Rotterdam, was already drawing and painting at the tender age of four. As far back as he can remember, his sole ambition was to be an artist. It was the natural world which caught his interest. He found that his course at The Academy of Visual Arts, where the teaching was skewed to the abstract and modern, was less than inspiring. What spoke to Renso was realism.

The overriding passion of this urban artist is to capture the mystical resonances of nature in the wild.

Renso's inspiration can also be stimulated by details such as a tuft of moss or the whimsical form of a tree. He considers it a challenge 'to make something captivating out of what appears uninteresting at first sight. In the composition of his paintings, this wildlife artist pays a lot of attention to accurate draughtsmanship in the representation of animals.
