Teisse-Renc studied art at Atelier 17 in France, and also in Germany. She has traveled extensively in Europe, North America, Africa, and Asia. In 1996, she took a study trip to the Arctic thanks to a subsidy from the French Ministere des Affaires Estrangeres. Her work is in collections in France, Germany, Holland, Belgium, the United States, and Canada. Teisse-Renc is listed in Who's Who in International Art, 1998 and International Women Artists: Entering The Second Millenium, 1997.
Her non-figurative work is distinguished by: a studied care and elegance of shapes; the importance attributed to drawing and its dynamic; a subdued color palette of whites, blacks, blues, and earthtones; and the desire to go back to basics and to eliminate the superfluous. Maarten Beks, Art Historian and Critic, states "Strength and Energy - such is the first impression that one experiences in the works of Mariette Teisse-Renc. An artist without compromise, that is, clearly genuine."
