REGINA COUPAR STUDIO
Regina Coupar BA, MTS, D.Min.
is an artist with a short attention span and a lot of energy!
Her visual art media include: painting, collage, raku-fired sculpture, jewellery and, her latest, Byzantine style mosaics - methods from the fourth century she learned in Ravenna, Italy.
She also likes to learn...
Beginning her academic career after age 40, Regina earned a BA in Religious Studies and Fine Art at Mount Saint Vincent University, a Master's degree in Theological Studies at the Atlantic School of Theology and a Doctor of Ministry degree from Regis College at the University of Toronto's School of Theology.
Regina's academic studies have married her two major interests: creativity and spirituality. Her D.Min. degree provided opportunity to explore relations between aesthetic and spiritual experience, and ways recent studies in neuroscience connect the two. As a practical theologian she is interested in theological evolution as a conduit for world peace.
In 2007, Regina founded the Arts and Theology Committee of the Atlantic School of Theology in Halifax, Nova Scotia, serving from 2007-2011 as Exhibitions Director/Curator for visual arts. In addition, she is the author of five books and several articles that connect art and spirituality.
Regina and her philosopher husband John (J.L. Schellenberg) live and work in a 19th century sea captain's house overlooking the islands of beautiful Mahone Bay in Nova Scotia.
