1-1CH.89: If you were to categorize or describe the style of your artwork, what would it be and why?

AR: Simple and effective. I just wish my creations live and find their place in your home, sweet home.

CH.89: Where do you draw your inspiration from?

AR: I find my inspiration from everything around me every day.

CH.89: Can you talk a little bit about what your creative thought process is like when starting a new project/ piece of artwork?

AR: Usually, all starts with a desire, a personal need. Once the target subject, I begin, I start by looking at what is around me and the first drawings arrive. And the project is under way.

CH.89: Is there anything in particular that you would want people to take from your artwork?

AR: I just wish people would take pleasure with my creations.

CH.89: Can you talk a little bit about your lifestyle as an artist and what that is like?

AR: An ordinary life. Nothing extraordinary, except that I am master of my day.

CH.89: When starting out an artistic task, do you think it is better to have a particular direction/set plan guiding your way? Or, is it better to act on impulse and go from there?

home_reignierAR: I work a lot on impulse. Often, I happen to go on an idea and in the end the product creates no resemblance to the final product.

CH.89: What is one major lesson you’ve learned as an artist thus far?

AR: Work and let go.

CH.89: Do you regard personal style & taste to be of highest importance?

CH.89: What do you consider to be the hardest thing about being an artist?

AR: The lack of time.

CH.89: What is one thing you love about being an artist?

AR: Do as I please

CH.89: Is there anyone in particular, any artist’s that inspire you in any way?

AR: No one in particular. I like a lot Japanese design for its clean, minimalist side and Nordic design for its clean lines and warmth.

CH.89: What do you think of technology in terms of being a useful tool for artists today?

AR: Yes, technology is important because design evolves therewith. But I think it important to reconnect with traditional manufacturing techniques as they give extra sensitivity to the object created. Particularly wood, a material that I love.

CH.89: Do you think being an artist allows you to view the world differently from those who don’t follow creative paths?

AR: It probably brings a different look to the outside world.

AR: I simply want to continue to do what I love.

CH.89: What does being an artist mean to you?

AR: Good question. We are all artists, the difference is only the way people perceive us.
