Artists' Bio


"Instead of seeking the light, Be the Light":

Thank you for stopping by!
       To tell you a little about myself, my name is
Renee' Barnette. I am a Carolina girl. I grew up near the mountains of North Carolina and lived on the coast of this beautiful state where I studied Fine Art, graduating from the University of Wilmington.
       I am a Licensed Massage & Bodywork Therapist (#1685), currently practicing with a career that spans more than 25 years. I have been passionate about art in all its various forms for as long as I can remember.  I am a singer/songwriter, author, poet, mixed media artist, and sometimes I am known to play in the mud, (on the potters wheel, that is)! Little did I realize how my love of music would also be incorporated into my career and life as an artist. I have always known somehow that I have music "in me", and not that I just "like" music. Somehow God has blessed me with this most precious gift. So, Vibrational Sound Therapy seemed like a natural fit for me.
 I am a Vibrational Sound Therapist, Certified Practitioner, offering sound healing immersions often referred to as "sound baths" for those seeking a deeper state of relaxation and transformation. In addition to my massage practice I have received my 500 hour training as a Registered Yoga Instructor, Yoga Alliance #192160. Yoga is such a beautiful practice that unites our individual selves, mind, body and spirit and it is a practice that can bring us together with others traveling on this journey of life together. I feel that yoga is like a moving meditation, connecting us to our body, mind and spirit and bringing us closer to God who created us. I love teaching with the same passion that I always strive to bring to my art and my life.
 I wrote a song, inspired by my niece Isabel, which I now have available as a children's book entitled 
 "Isabel's Song", written by me and illustrated by a friend. The song is available as a single or on a full length CD of original songs I wrote and recorded entitled "You Are". All are available here on my site, along with some of my other creations. 

I currently reside near the Foothills of this beautiful state and share life, travel and adventure with my loving husband Robert and our sweet baby girl, Dachshund Macy. If you are in the area and find yourself at a local winery, maybe we will see you there, bringing some great dance music and good times with our band, "Euphoria". 

Please feel free to reach out to me about yoga, massage, art or sound and meditation. I'd love to hear about your journey and share some of my passions with you!
