curator

Artist Renee Pak is behind the curation of Studio Den.

It was by coincidence that she ran into a perfect retail space in beautiful Gilman Village in Issaquah, Washington, and it was her love of good design and great craftsmanship that helped her step into the journey as a retailer and a curator.

While in search for an art studio close to home, Renee found a quaint little cottage with lots of windows in Gilman Village, available only for retail. Retail business was not something she ever considered before, but there was a spark of inspiration, that she took the chance. Bringing unique products to Issaquah quickly became her mission, and she has worked tirelessly since, finding great products with unique design and exceptional quality, all for her devoted customers that appreciate quality products. She also loves connecting with artists and crafters through work and sharing inspiration. Aside from work, Renee travels quite frequently and enjoys coming across many creative minds along the way. 

Renee is still working as an artist while keeping Studio Den running. Her latest works are in oil on canvas and some ceramics. She occasionally shows her work at Studio Den.
