ABOUT KATHLEEN REGAN
- Freelance Illustrator
Kathleen is a graduate of Rhode Island College with a Bachelor's
of Arts in Mathematics and Art. After college, she worked
as a graphic designer and then as an Assistant Art Director
for Martek Corporation, a specialty advertising agency, for
a number of years. "My heart just wasn't in that type
Her true love of drawing won out and she left Martek to start
a freelancing career as an illustrator. "My first clients
were smaller ad agencies who had me as a sort of 'resident'
illustrator. I was called upon to do a wide variety of jobs
which was great experience. One day I would get a call to
do a realistic watercolor and the next day, a cartoon, photography
or even costume making. It was very rewarding, but not exactly
what I craved."
Kathleen's desire to render realistic, detailed artwork led
to the airbrush. It wasn't long before she discovered her
medium of choice. "I am always challenging myself to
make something more realistic, more detailed, yet out of this
world. The airbrush is perfect for this type of work."
In fact, her first airbrush painting was chosen to be included
in Airbrush Action Magazine's Airbrush Action: The Best New
Airbrush Illustration, Volumes I and II. This led to a Certificate
of Recognition for inclusion in Page One Publishing's 1995
Index. She has since worked mainly in the advertising and
Blue Cross & Blue Shield,
Newberry Public Relations, and
Kathleen is also an accomplished portrait artist. Subjects
include: children, pets, houses and custom wedding programs.
