Regina Seib

Regina was born in East Germany and immigrated to Canada at age seven with her mother and grandmother. She has lived in various locations in Western Canada, including Saskatoon. She currently resides in Nanaimo.

Art is Regina’s passion, evident throughout her childhood and continuing in to adulthood, always painting as time permits. Over the years she has taken a number of artist’s workshops and several classes at the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina. She earned her AFCA March 2009.

Regina paints full time and had the opportunity to attend a workshop with Brian Atyeo at River Rock Studios, Cochrane, Alberta and a workshop and symposium with Jerry Heine, Jack Reid, Teresa Posniak and Doris McCarthy in Jasper, Alberta. She is presently exploring textures, shapes and colours in acrylic and watercolour.

“My desire to create continues to intensify and since the year 2000 I have painted full time realizing a life long dream. With the creative urge God has given me, I am constantly motivated and challenged as I explore new ideas and methods for making marks on canvas. Breaking into abstract images has given me great liberty in expressing myself and expanding my boundaries. It is very gratifying to have my works in numerous collections in Canada and abroad.”

Regina’s work is currently displayed in Saskatoon at Collector’s Choice Art Gallery.
