Regina Gudelis

 

Her paintings focus on the spontaneity and fluidity that is ALIVE in us all.

Accepted in many juried shows and winning many awards, the works of Regina Gudelis can be found in galleries and private and corporate collections in Canada, USA and Europe.

“My paintings are centered on actual experience and expression of feeling and emotion through gestural vigorous brushwork. This energy draws the viewer in and communicates a message beyond words.”

Using watercolour and acrylics in a vibrant, loosely executed style, Regina produces unique abstract and traditional paintings.

Although she is primarily a self-taught artist, she has studied at the Summit School of Arts (New Jersey) and Lambton College. She continues her art education by participating in numerous workshops given by world-renowned artists.

Her awards include Sarnia Mayors Art Award (1st place in 2005, 3rd place in 2019), WOLFF award (2002 and 2009), Petrolia Victoria Hall (2017 and 2019).
