Talking Top Tens: Reagan Corbett

Studio Artist

03.27.17

Reagan Corbett received her BA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin, College of Fine Arts. She also studied at the University of Paris Sorbonne. Currently, Reagan resides in Houston where her career as an emerging artist has taken flight. In a society where it is increasingly difficult to accept anything at face value, Reagan uses large canvasses to magnify a small area of the human figure. This is her way of bringing brutal honesty to the edited, filtered, “selfie” culture we have all become accustomed to. Reagan’s work, while simple at first glance, offers open-ended questions for the viewer to contemplate. Art exhibitions include Anarte Gallery, San Antonio, TX; and The Visual Arts Center, Austin TX; and Page Home Design, Austin TX. Reagan’s paintings have been acquired by collectors in the US and abroad. For more on Reagan, follow her on Instagram and Tumblr and check out her website here

@JenniferFisherJewelry. Jennifer Fisher is one of the coolest, most inspiring women I’ve never met. I think of her jewelry as chic and amazing wearable art. I would love to do a collaboration of some kind with her! 

Your current Netflix addiction:

The Crown! I’ve always been passionate about history, so I find the royal customs, politics, fashion, and culture portrayed in the show to be really interesting.  

What do you love most about your work:

I love the level of satisfaction I get during the final stages of painting; when I have created something that did not exist before. It’s rewarding that I am able to share my visions, creativity and voice with the rest of the world through art. 

Skincare product you can’t live without and why:

EltaMD sunscreen! I’m a huge advocate for wearing sunscreen everyday, and EltaMD is great for all skin types. I’ve been putting it on my face and hands everyday for the past 6 years.

A Wildfox sweater, James Perse shirt, or graphic tee with sweat pants.
