"I loved the class. Not only have I improved my designing skills, but I have also gained a lot of confidence to try new things and to expand on ideas for covers. I went back and redesigned some of my covers and now I can’t wait to write and finish the projects that I have covers for. I’ve even sold a premade and had someone else ask me for a custom cover.
I have pages of notes that I now need to type up so I have them forever. Honestly, the thing I am the most grateful for is the added confidence. I will be forever grateful for the knowledge and help I have gained from these classes and for how approachable Regina is. When I had a question, I reached out to her, and she answered quickly and was extremely friendly. Seriously, everyone interested in designing book covers should take this class!"

Hey, I'm Regina Wamba. It's me in all my snarky introvert glory. I'm a bit of a rebel who is determined to do things differently, weave through the chaos of a creative and manifest consistent and spellbinding art, forevermore.
My creations have been given awards, featured in magazines, and have graced multiple New York Times & USA Today bestsellers lists while landing my work on bookshelves (and magazine shelves? LOL) across the globe (I'm still in shocked about this one!).
My soul is in everything I put out into the world whether it is from behind a camera lens, a Mac screen, a sarcastic tee, fine art creations, journals & books or world-trekking adventures. I'm an artist, mom, wifey, entrepreneur, and teacher building a creative empire to inspire all the creatives! My dream is to be someone for visionaries to look up to and artists to pursue their biggest dreams (because, WHY NOT?). I want people to hold magic in their hands, and always believe in their own unique, incredible magic.
Full throttle and all-in, my brain is an explosion of ideas and color and I only wished that my hands could keep up with my brain of chaos & creativity.
Let's make magic.
