Regina Miele, a classically trained fine artist, was raised in the suburbs of New York City. Much of her childhood was spent in Manhattan’s museums, particularly The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where her father worked as a Civil Engineer building the Egyptian Wing. She spent countless hours exploring the MET which began her lifelong love of the arts.
Regina attended the Catholic University of America and in her junior year studied abroad at the Scuolo Lorenzo Di Medici in Florence, Italy. Her experience of intensive studio concentration in painting, drawing, sculpture, and theory, in the birth place of the Renaissance, conveyed an interest in art into a commitment to a career as a fine artist.
Miele has exhibited both nationally and internationally at such venues as: The Florence Biennale, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Newington Cropsey Museum, Baltimore’s Artscape as well as Caelum, Agora and Broadway in New York. Her work is included in both public and private collections in Jerusalem, Miami, New York, Puerto Rico, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Tel Aviv, and Washington, DC. She currently resides and maintains a studio in Washington, DC.
A review of Miele’s Agora Gallery, Soho exhibit, Maureen Flynn writes, “Space and light conspire in Miele’s exquisitely refined oils on linen to create the sense of genuine epiphany in a way that few other artists are capable of doing who work only with the subject at hand do not distort for emotional effect.” Miele works extensively with traditional mediums, oil, watercolor, graphite and charcoal. For her, these practices provide a limitless journey into the possibilities of fine art.
