Portrait of a Woman recognizes its annual Honorees and
Matriarchs in a unique and personal way, through original
oil portraits that will be displayed at leading venues

Renowned portrait artist and businesswoman Renee Plevy
conceived this unique way to recognize the dedication of
these women by painting a special portrait of each Honoree.
Her 35 years of expertise painting notables is brilliantly
displayed in these portraits that show the unique soul of
these remarkable women.
“We are raising monies to support Quantum House, a nonprofit
hospital hospitality house, the only facility of its kind
between Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida. Quantum House
was established in May 2001 to provide a caring and
supportive home that lessens the burden for families whose
children are receiving treatment in Palm Beach County for a
serious medical condition,” says Plevy.
