She was born in Athens, Georgia in 1973; however traveling many roads since the beginning. She studied Photography and Art at a small school on top of a mountain in Tennessee called the University of the South in Sewanee. She also traveled and lived for a short time in Paris, France. Since her travels she has enjoyed moving back to her hometown of Athens and getting reacquainted with the small college town that is known for its art and music. Athens not only provides a beautiful place to live and work but the mild winters provide for a near year-round gardening experience.
Her and her husband Lee maintain a garden for a former architect and landscape designer, the late Dr. John Linley. They have spent the last eight years building on his legacy. There most recent project is a greenhouse that was constructed of salvaged factory windows and wood. They have planted out summer garden and are experimenting with how to turn an old set of monkey bars into a garden trellis. The time she has spent in the garden as well as in her hometown have helped her see the moments of experiences and perception, help provide a balance to the world's hectic lifestyle.
Rinne style of photography is a search for the essence of something in it's simplest form. That form will then become part of her memory, something she can reference on her next experience. This is what keeps me here, while fleeting is something she look forward to enjoying. She has been lucky to work at so many very creative businesses such as R. Wood Studio in Athens, GA, Hable Construction in New York City, NY, Firefly in Thomasville, GA, Pollen in Atlanta, GA. Her work has been in publications ranging from the local weekly paper to House Beautiful & Country Living. She has also been very fortunate to have her photographs hanging on the walls of Hable Construction's Shop in New York City, NY, and also at Mercury Artwork, Gosford Wine and Marti's all in Athens, Ga if you are ever in the area please go check them out.
