Featured Artist: Reagan Corbett


Today, we are featuring a young and bold pop artist, Reagan Corbett. In the interior design industry, we are always on the search for art with meaning for our clients. Reagan’s is exactly that. We caught up with Reagan for a little Q&A on how her art defines who she is as a person and where her passion for art has lead her.


Playsuit Front // My First Back


Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Reagan graduated with a BA in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin, College of Fine Arts. She now resides in Houston where she is well-known for her art heavily influenced by American pop culture.

Reagan works with oils, acrylics, and occasionally metallics to achieve the purpose of her paintings — to tell a story using colors. In addition, high gloss and/or matte varnishes are present in each composition. Her signature display is using large canvases to magnify a small area of the human figure. To say the least, Reagan’s unique style and visual appeal offers open-ended questions for the viewers to envisage.

We asked Reagan Corbett a few questions about her lifelong dedication for painting that has turned into a full-time career as an professional pop artist.

1/ Tell me about yourself, your art experience, and how you decided that creating art was something you wanted to make a career out of.

My name is Reagan Corbett; I’m an artist, travel enthusiast, sister of two, and native Houstonian. My experience with art is more than what I create in the studio- it’s my passionate love for art history, and how I’ve been able to express myself to the rest of the world. As crazy as it sounds, art has always been a part of my life to some degree or another. Between my obsession with coloring books as a child, taking drawing classes, and signing up for art camp (among many more examples), it wasn’t until my senior year at The University of Texas at Austin that I decided being a full time artist was the career path I would be following.

2/ What is your favorite piece of art that you’ve ever created and why?

That is such a hard question! Almost every time I finish a painting I either verbally say, “This is the best painting I’ve ever done,” or I think to myself, this is my new favorite. If you’re really going to make me pick one, I have to say Afro Girl is my favorite. Afro Girl is a 48” x 48” oil painting I created during my undergrad studies. I was trying to make my first abstract painting then all the sudden had an artist breakthrough and saw a face. I went with my gut and transformed my abstract painting into a beautiful cotton candy colored afro. This painting got me into my first show, and has a ton of sentimental value.


The Kiss

3/ What are you trying to communicate with your art?

Within my body of work I’m really trying to evoke the feelings of nostalgia and Texas heritage, while introducing conversation about current social and cultural dilemmas. If you take a look at my work you can either accept it at face value or read into each piece’s deeper meaning. Creating art in a colorful, pop-art style has been my way of communicating these notions to my viewers.



4/ Who is your ultimate inspiration and why?

Right now my ultimate inspiration is Damien Hirst. Aside from being a creative genius and producing incredible work, Hirst has shepherded a modern day art movement that I have become a part of. His business model is inspiring and has pushed me to continue depicting subjects I want to paint, rather than only painting the things people are sure to have a positive response to.

5/ What is the process for taking custom orders or selling work?

It’s really important to me that my work reflects my vision as an artist. I’m happy to work with clients as long as the final product is true to my style. Collectors usually begin the buying process by emailing (reagan@reagartcollection.com) or sending me a direct message on Instagram (@reag_art) about the availability of a specific piece of art. Although that’s the most common, I occasially get collectors who simply “want a piece of reagART” and buy whatever I have available.

5 Fab Friday Finds: Fiber Art

Man, tapestries have gone a long way haven’t they? We are loving artists’ & crafters’ new take on fiber or fabric art.

Let’s do a little definition, shall we!

Fiber Art: ( /ˈfībər/ /ärt/ ) fine art whose material consists of natural or synthetic fiber and other components, such as fabric or yarn. It focuses on the materials and on the manual labour on the part of the artist as part of the works’ significance, and prioritizes aesthetic value over utility.

Here are our Top 5 Fiber Art finds for this fabulous Friday {did you see what we did there?}:

1/ Lauren Williams

Lauren Williams, a self-taught painter, began creating modern-bohemian, dip dyed fiber art because she wanted to something other than canvas art in her home. Her passion for modern art and art of macramé is what motivates her to continue designing art with texture, beauty, and movement. Check out her page to see her range of colors, styles, and textures!

2/ El Anatsui

I have never seen something like El Anatsui’s shimmering hangings. Featured in monumental places across Africa, America, and Europe, these expansive sheets are comprised of millions of tiny, colorful pieces of metal and bottle caps that are shaped and held together by copper wires. Although El Anatsui does make public commissions, his mixed media art is only sold at art fairs and shows. Browse his instagram account, @anatsuiel, to see more of his legendary work.

3/ Faig Ahmed 

Faig Ahmed’s hyper contemporary wall sculptures embody ancient carpet-weaving techniques from his native country of Azerbaijan and are usually mounted on architectural structures. His intricately designed pieces are famous for their patterns that advocate digital manipulation, pixelation, and distortion. Like El Anatsui, his work is exhibited at prestigious fairs across the world and he does make public commissions for certain pieces.


4/ Sonadora Studio, Lisa Garcia

Talk about a dreamer and a doer, Lisa Garcia began as an interior designer and decided to take her career even farther by branching into product design and art direction. By incorporating fibers into her work, she turned her ideas into reality and opened up Sonadora Studio in Nashville. Sonadora Studio offers more affordable, hemp and brass minimalist art. Their hand-made art pieces are perfect if you need something to fill a blank wall anywhere in your home!


5/ Kilim Tapestry from Anthropologie 

The bright orange, dip-dyed ends and sequin embellishments caught my eye as I was scrolling on the Anthropologie website. Made of hand-spun wool, cotton, and a metal rod, this funky hanging would look so cute in any room that needs a pop of color. P.S. the orange totally makes me think of Fall leaves, which makes me happy.


I hope that these fab finds spur your imagination and give you some inspiration for your own home. Have a blessed weekend and check in next Friday for some more home decor ideas!
