A local artist out of central coast’s city of Lompoc, Louie Regalado has been devoted to the arts since a young child. Now as an adult he does his best to give back to his community by directing the nonprofit “First Thursdays” art show that features local artists from the central coast on the first Thursday of every month.
Beyond the art shows and the murals that he has painted in town, he has also been instructing paint classes for the last few years for any and every age group for Brushes N’ Vino® private and public events.
Virginia was born in 1958, in a quiet town half an hour away from Argentina’s capital city Buenos Aires. Born to middle class parents who worked and lived near the “Delta” by the Lujan River, she has always loved the water and simple things in life. She showed an interest and ability for the arts from an early age. She started studying painting when she was 5 years old and has been doing it all her life, taking her love for the arts to different areas; always trying new techniques, surfaces, and using a wide variety of styles and mediums, and using whatever she gets her hands on to make her art very unique. She studied Architecture at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, in Argentina, from which she graduated in 1982; but she always kept focusing on what she really loves, Art. Even though she took classes to help her improve her techniques, she has always focused on self-learning, by trying new things on her own approaching things with her own personal touch.
She studied for many years with Ventura Valente, with whom she participated in many regional expositions. She also studied Sculpture with Viviana Scabatini, with where she had her work presented at many art shows. .A few years ago she moved to Los Angeles, California to start a new life. She attended some sculpture classes at the Barnsdall Center; and now focuses a lot of her energy in doing what she loves, taking advantage of everything beautiful California has to offer; especially to free-spirited people like her. She paints on almost any surface, including wood, canvas, bark, walls. She has done many murals around Southern California, and anything else she can find; using watercolors, pastels, oils, and acrylic. She loves going outside of the box. She does Sculptures in Paper Mache, Plaster, Clay, Stone, and Wire. She has worked on some engraving on bronze and copper, and she enjoys doing collages.
She is a very versatile artist who is always trying new things and mixing techniques and materials which give her art a Unique Style. Her work shows many influences from Surrealism, to tropical colors and cubist structure. With her vivid use of striking color arrangements and juxtapositions, she has created a truly unique style that is all her own.
Having an interest in drawing at a young age, William has drawn and painted murals of various characters and subject matter.
His passion for art started with drawing in the cities of Palm Springs, Los Angeles, and New York to currently teaching and painting for Brushes N’ Vino.
