Regina currently lives in southern AZ with the love of her life and her two beautiful boys. She is strongly influenced by the warm weather, bright sun and the Mexican colors, style and architecture that are predominant in the city where she lives. She is very passionate about doing what she loves and incorporates art into her daily living whether through painting, drawing, photography or art journaling.
"Creative Kismet Art came about because of my desire to share my art, ideas and a little bit of sunshine to as many people as possible.
I believe, that through art and creative process, your outlook can change and become more positive...more open. You start at first looking for beauty and inspiration then eventually, you began to see it everywhere without even trying.
On a walk, going to the store,driving through town–it is everywhere I look. It is in the Southwestern mountains, the desert, in nature, in the streets, and in the people too.
When I sit quietly, I can recall these beautiful fragments caught like photos in my mind. My style is the unraveling of a woven mixture of my Hispanic heritage, my deep rooted love for folk art and my enchantment with magical whimsicality.
I begin putting ideas down on paper, making doodles and sketches, finally pulling out my paint, papers and any other medium that calls to me. With my paintbrush and the boldest colors, I pull ideas together in the best way that makes my heart sing. Always bright, always colorful, always pure of heart. "
