Regina Christie makes luminous, abstract paintings that are built up
through layers of oil paint on linen conveying a compression of time and
space and place.
Regina first studied painting with Walter Kuhlman while sharing his studio.
For 8 years she studied with Chester Arnold at the College of Marin. She
attended Sonoma State University, where she worked with Mark Perlman.
Regina was a student of Connie Smith Siegel for 12 years, and her drawings
and paintings were included in Smith Siegel’s book "The Spirit of Drawing".
Her continued exploration has led her paintings to be included in a number
of highly selective juried shows in Northern California. These include “Out
of the Blue,” (juried by Ruth Braunstein) at Gallery Route One in Point Reyes
Station, and the Annual Fall Exhibition (juried by Andrea Schwartz) at Falkirk
Cultural Center in San Rafael and "Fresh Art" (juried by Rene de Guzman)
at Marin Society of Artist's Gallery in Ross.

group exhibition at the University Gallery at the University of
