Tony O’Regan was born in Cork, Ireland in a house called Santa Lucia, built by his uncle, Mark, a singer in the big band era. He grew up Canada and in Florida, and was educated in Art and Architecture. He painted many paintings and designed many buildings. Tony painted in Paris and the West Coast of Ireland. He taught Art and Design in major universities for over 20 years, including Emily Carr Univ. and UBC. He uses his skills in architecture, perspective, and landscape design to compose his images of what things are and what they might be. He drinks coffee at the Pelican Rouge and sketches gulls by the great White Rock as they ‘gyre and gimble’ in the waves.
Tony continues to create a collection of hundreds of his demonstrations and teaching videos as well as other useful content for artists, teachers, students and design school applicants at www.toregan.com and www.artcentro.com
