Artist Spotlight: Regina Wamba

Meet digital & cover artist, Regina Wamba!

Q: How long have you been doing photography & cover art?

AI have been doing photography for probably like 8 years now, but recently been it’s been taking off in more than just a hobby doing models, families, seniors and weddings. Cover art and graphic design.. well I have been doing graphic design for 5 years, and cover art and digital art is something I taught myself in 2011, originally it stems from being a traditional artist with paints, charcoal, pastels, etc. I wanted to find something similar to painting and drawing, and found that with digital art, which now is turning into a passion doing cover art for authors!

Pretty girl. Women are naturally much better at portraying emotion..

Depends on the day. A good kick between coffee and Naturally Perky!

Only one movie has ever made me scream.. and it was creepy. But mostly cry. I cry when people cry. Absurd.. I know. :/
