Regina Thomas

Paradise Lost

Regina’s collage and mixed media art is a mélange of visual stimuli, colors, and shapes involving different genres from the representational to the abstract. These multi-layered works portray her view of the world, never realistic, injecting her own narratives, metaphors, and icons. Regina works instinctually and her desire is to stimulate and intrigue the viewer, make a connection, bringing their own experiences to the work.

She lived and traveled throughout Asia and Europe. While in London, Regina attended Richmond University concentrating on the Art Disciplines as well as Studio classes. Upon her return to the states she continued refining her art through classes and workshops at RISD ( Rhode Island School of Design), The New Art Center in Newton, South Shore Art Center, West Hartford Art League, Creative Arts Workshop/New Haven, CT, Yale University and The British Art Museum. Regina shows in private galleries, In-House Artist of Elm City Artists Gallery LLC in New Haven, Elected Artist with New Haven Paint & Clay, Gallery Artist with South Shore Art Center in Cohasset, Massachusetts. She has private collectors across the U.S., Europe, South America and Asia.

Regina began showing her work in November 2002 and has been included in many juried exhibitions in New England. Her most recent shows have been at The John Slade Ely House in New Haven this Spring, and The Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook.
