The elegance of a fallen leaf on the forest floor, the eerie glow as morning fog lifts, the dynamic tension between abstraction and naturalism – these are the inspirations for Regina Quinn’s encaustic and oil paintings. A New York City native, Regina divides her time between New York’s Catskill Mountains and the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont where her work is influenced by the stark winters, lush springs, exuberant summers and vibrant autumns. Working in encaustics, she builds transparent and opaque layers, scrapes and scratches and incises to reveal and obscure, working towards the sense of awe and wonder she experiences daily in the natural world.
Regina holds a Special Studies in Fine Arts bachelor’s degree from Trinity College where she received the Peyser Art Award, first prize and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Vermont. She has designed and painted sets for several Lyric Theater productions at Burlington, Vermont’s Flynn Theater for the Performing Arts and has worked as a muralist, graphic designer, and educator for 35 years. Regina is dedicated to sparking students’ creativity, innovation, and passion for environmental stewardship.
I love your work very much . Just resonates deeply with me . Living near Yosemite and other national parks in the Central Valley of California affords me the opportunity to explore nature close in extraordinary ways . Just looking at your work inspires me to go back to landscapes , light and nature once again . Thank you for sharing your work !

Regina, I am so glad I discovered you on Instagram. Your work sings to me. I feel you pull from the same sources I pull from. I can travel into every one of your paintings. I hope some day to meet you when I visit “North Country!”
Julie, thank you! And I’m thrilled to discover your work, as well. Hope to meet you and see your work in person some day!

Thanks for your question. I live in northern NY, about an hour north west of Hudson.
I will be offering a 2-day Zoom workshop in February through the Museum of Encaustic Arts – Encaustic Art Institute called Wax Over Water: Creating luminous images in encaustics, oils, and watercolor. If you may be interested, I can share your email with the institute. The flyer and registration will be available soon. Have a lovely day. Regina
