To veterinary parents, Regina was born in Japan with a leash in hand.
Creatively connected to Regina’s leash over the years were: crayons, markers, pens, pencils, chisels, chalks, files, paint brushes, dogs, cats, horses, and computer mice.
Educated in Science and Art, Regina straddled the two, much like she does the PC and Mac, applying a balanced or split- sided humor to all that she sees.
Employment as a chemist, dog handler, horse trainer, technology teacher, publicist, designer, webmaster and fine artist convinced her that animals and humans share remarkable qualities.
Life in Japan, New York City and Upstate New York reminded her animals and humans are very much alike.
In 2003 Regina started Animal Hackerz sketches.
Today Regina is a fine artist and writer who recently moved from upstate New York to Heron Bayou, Mon Louis Island, Alabama, with her artist husband, Benno Kollegger, her four horses and three barking mice ( miniature pinschers). While the change has been drastic in many ways, the wonders of the South override.
Animal Hackerz is Regina’s illustrated world of animals and people communicating in a post 9/11 world of spam, splog, pixels and tweets.
