I was born in 1986, and spent the first half of my life in and around the Bay Area of California. I currently live and work in Fairbanks, Alaska, where I love to hate it, but hate to leave it.
I am often asked where I my ideas come from. The truth is that I am constantly invaded with images, and I indulge my mind to make connections within them. My art then becomes about connection, about the relationship between objects or characters, and about the journey from concept to completed work of art. My art also connects me to my obsessive need for details and profound need for visual order. The details are then an outlet for these compulsive energies, allowing me to connect uniquely with each work of art.
My paintings are applied to a wood surface or panel, with hand drawn details in inks, markers, or color pencils. The mixed media approach further complements the combination of ideas and captures more details and intricacies of the character or object, while also satisfying my compulsive energy.
Reagan is my middle name, not my maiden. I chose consistency.
