Biography of Regina Gudelis
The works of Regina Gudelis can be found in galleries and private and corporate collections in Canada, USA and Europe. In addition to winning numerous awards, her paintings and sculptures have been accepted in juried exhibitions in North America.
Using watercolour and acrylics in a vibrant, loosely executed style, Regina produces unique abstract and traditional paintings. Meditation, teaching yoga and travel throughout the world add fuel to her creative spirit. She draws upon the images of the universe and the creativity from within her soul for her pieces. Many of her paintings are spiritual with symbolic forms. Often the subject is unknown and as she starts the painting. As she layers shape upon shape, colour upon colour, gradually the subject begins to reveal itself and have unity.
An example of one of her works is best described by the artist. One of her abstract paintings, Child of the Universe, Regina describes as: “there is a women with a child who is looking at many planets realizing there is so much more than what we can see and that we are all children of the universe”.

She continues her art education by participating in numerous workshops given by world-renowned artists such as Jack Reid, Barbara Nechis, Alex Powers, Katherine Liu, Don Andrews, Carole Barnes, and Steve Aimone.
