Regan is a recent graduate of Goddard College’s MFA-IA (Interdisciplinary Art) program, (September 2018) a low-residency, program based upon advisor/advisee relationships that requires students to design their own course and methodology of study. Her practice-research during this three year program included writing, mixed media painting, philosophy and the development of an approach to the creative process that she calls Divinatory Poetics. Her portfolio document can be viewed here.
In 2015, Regan completed a 3-year professional training in Essential Shamanism–a contemporary adaptation of global Shamanic practices–with Julie M Kramer in Boulder, Colorado.
In the years between her formal studies, Regan continued her studies of photography and contemplative movement traditions, including Tai Chi. She supported herself working in galleries, as a masseuse, as a fine art model and transcribing dharma talks. In her early twenties, she was once paid for designing three wine labels for a client, but was intimidated by the experience of commissioned work and did not make any further attempt to sell her work until 2019.
Regan earned her BA Interdisciplinary Studies (Conc. Embodied Poetics: Studies in Language and Perception) from Naropa University, an accredited Buddhist University in Boulder, Colorado in 2004.
