Regina Guarino was born in New York City and studied art and design at Parsons School of Design and FIT before earning a Master’s in Education at Fordham University. After a successful career as a designer and teacher at both Brookdale College and Monmouth University, she painted in the studio of Portrait Artist, Scott Nickerson. She also studied with Steven Assael, Max Ginsberg and Mario Robinson. Her technique of oil painting reflects the classic style of the 17th and 18th Century Old Masters. Regina is a member of the Portrait Society of America, Allied Artists of America, the Salmagundi Club in New York City and the Guild of Creative Art.
Ilene Smith has been painting for over 40 years, developing her distinctive style to reflect a personal vision of harmony in an often chaotic world. She built her career working with a publisher, and exhibiting in major galleries throughout the US. Originally from Southern California, she now makes her home in Red Bank, New Jersey. Ilene’s Californian background reflects the fluidity of her style in the warmth and vibrancy of her colorful, joyous oil paintings.
