Regina Burchett creates art primarily in pastels and oils. She graduated from Michigan State University, studying textiles and art. Over the years, she has studied drawing, painting, calligraphy, stone sculpture, weaving, computer art and animation, and creating websites.
Regina has continued her art studies with many well known pastel artists, including workshops with Cara Reische, Will Klemm, Susan Carlin, Richard McKinley, Bob Rohm, Claudia Seymour, Liz Haywood-Sullivan, Fred Somers and Barbara Jaenicke.
“God’s creation inspires me every day. In my view, art should improve the life of the artist and the viewer – by giving them beauty, humor, a moment of peace… I love to feel that I have achieved that whenever possible. And I'm grateful for the opportunity to try.”
She was a finalist in The Artist's Magazine's 29th Annual Art Competition and was recently the featured artist in the Informed Collector Daily Brief. She is known for painting skies and clouds and gives demonstrations and workshops featuring incorporating skies into landscape paintings.
Art associations include: Campagna Society of Artists, Crown Artists, and the Piedmont Pastel Society. Regina gladly accepts commissions, and works from her studio at Clearwater Artists Studios in the city of Concord, North Carolina, where the arts are truly encouraged and supported.
