Regina Hona

Melbourne born artist, Regina Hona is a full-time professional artist, having studied classical tonal realism in oil many years ago.  It was the discovery of pastels that allowed her to embrace her painting with a new intensity due to the limitations that oil painting imposed whilst raising a young family.  Although she has returned to painting in oils and has experimented with other mediums, she loves soft pastels because of their immediacy and versatility.  It has the advantage of speed and directness and the smooth, thick quality of soft pastels produce rich, painterly effects.  The soft and vibrant colours help create varying atmospheres where can focus on the effects of light and shade in the subject.

Regina can paint any subject, but she now specialises in water subjects and the human form.

Regina is a past Treasurer and  President of the Pastel Society of Victoria (2001-2004) and travels within Australia conducting workshops for various art groups.  More recently she is being sought to judge art shows and takes overseas tours.

Regina’s work has also been published in art magazines and books.
