Regina Lord was born and raised in northern Arizona and has lived in Arizona for almost all of her life. She was very interested in art at a young age and was encouraged to be creative by her loving grandparents. Regina studied art throughout her high school and college years along with studying to become a registered nurse. She received her Bachelors in the Science of Nursing from Northern Arizona University in 1999 and worked as a womens and childrens hospital nurse until 2012, when she left her nursing career to pursue her creative dreams of being a full time artist. 
Regina currently lives in southern AZ with the love of her life and her two boys, tortoise Rocky and dog Freya. She is strongly influenced by the warm weather, bright sun, her Mexican heritage and the Sonoran desert. She is very passionate about doing what she loves and incorporating color, nature, whimsy into her art.
