Regine Bechtler was born in Germany but emigrated to the United States in the late 1990's, which served as the catalyst for the beginning of her career as a professional artist. She takes risks in her work, experimenting with emotions and contradictions through a variety of mediums including ceramic sculpture, painting, mixed media textile art, fashion design, and interior design. Mrs. Bechtler's work has been featured on Fox TV, Style Network, and Food Network, as well as in The Charlotte Observer, Spotlight Magazine and the Charlotte Official Visitors Guide. She has also participated in several art-shows all over the world, including shows in Germany, France, and Ecuador. Currently, Regine resides in Charlotte, NC with her husband, Andreas Bechtler.
