Regina Chyzy was born in Arborg, Manitoba. A self-taught artist, Regina works in oils, acrylics, mixed media, photography, creative sewing, and cooking. Found and recycled materials, such as wedding dresses, discarded glass, bicycle wheels to name a few are Regina's "canvases".
Recovering from a childhood accident that threatened the use of her hands, her parents – an important influence on her development as an artist – encouraged her to sew, knit, and cook. Her parents farmed and inspired Regina’s love of the land, her appreciation for her heritage, and her strong faith. Regina says she is “different, off the beaten track.” Life gives her a wide breadth of experience, throughout which she keeps landing on her feet through tenacity and strong values.
