Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, he has been drawing and painting since childhood. His
early training in fine art and design was at Louisiana State University followed by
studies at the American Academy of Art and the Chicago Art Institute. During the
Korean War, he spent two years in the U.S.Army. Discharged from the Army at the
Presidio in San Francisco, he stayed in San Francisco and founded the nationally
known San Francisco graphic design firm, "Unigraphics", which served the design
needs of many prominent American Corporations.
Reginald's thirty years of experience in graphic design with its demanding needs has
provided the background for his pursuit of creative art. His knowledge of horses
comes from 'hands-on' experience. A lifetime of loving and raising horses, buying and
selling them has enabled him to paint the horse so masterfully.
Reginald and his wife, Alice, finally found themselves living in Tucson, Arizona and
he has been painting the American West ever since.
