Regina Fernandes is Brazilian and has been living in Edinburgh since 1989. She is largely self-taught and has worked professionally in Brazil as an illustrator and in painted textiles. She has also designed and illustrated several books, outstanding among which is a limited edition of Lewis Carol's The Hunting of the Snark. Her career has been developing under the combined influences of her professional experiences as a designer/illustrator and her thoughtful progress as an independent artist. Most of her work is figurative and questions of light and shadow are ever present. When she paints interiors and still life, what she paints are inscapes and still lights.
