Her paintings were exhibited in Autoshow in 2003, in Mercedes-Benz Showroom, Etiler, "Bir İstanbul Masalı" Serial for ATV Television, in various collections both in Turkey and abroad such as TUYAP Art Museum, SAV Automobile Museum, hotels and private collections.
Racing, Formula 1, fast cars, but also yachts and planes are in the focus of her work, and Ertosun focuses on their form, speed, colour, excitement and adrenaline that they symbolize. The motto "speed, colour and movement" become recognizable for her work. Renan developed a contemporary style of painting, featuring a fusion of vibrant colours and light, as well as dynamic brush strokes.
