Jemitra Renea hails from a small town nestled in the lush, green rolling hills at the foot of the Blue ridge Mountain range. She was born into a family of creatives and educators.

True to her roots, but thousands of miles away from the soil from which she sprung, Renea carries on the family tradition of making and teaching, but in her own unique way.

Jemitra Renea’s devotion to tradition and transformation manifests itself through:

Storytelling

Jemitra Renea is an oral storyteller with a penchant for folktales, autobiographical stories, and the sorts of stories that blur the line between the real and the imagined.

New events will be posted soon.

Leather Craft

Jemitra Renea is a leather crafter, making leather accessories using traditional techniques, such as:  hand stitching, braiding, wet molding, and carving.
