The works of Pioneer resident Judy Regnier will be featured during the month of August at the gallery of AmadorArts, located in Sutter Creek. Regnier has been painting for 40 years. Not only does she create florals and landscapes in watercolor, oils, and acrylic, she has a website design business and is a deeply involved volunteer with the organization Donate Life – California, which promotes organ and tissue donor transplants. She herself is a liver transplant recipient, as well as a breast cancer survivor. During the Amador Art Trek on August 3, from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, meet this interesting artist who has many talents and stories having lived in a variety of places across the country.
Judy Regnier studied at Northern Illinois University, Illinois State University, and has Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees from Polk State College in Winter Haven, Florida. She says, “I began with oils and acrylics when I lived in Indiana and Florida. I tried experimenting in 1990 with watercolor, which I considered a more difficult medium, as I relocated to Northern California. She explains that the “remarkable light and historical, stunning landscapes stirred my soul to pour this onto paper…thus began my watercolor adventures.” For her volunteer efforts with Donate Life California, she recently was honored, receiving an award for “Outstanding Community Service” from the Upcountry Rotary Club.
