Randy Regier didn't grow up making art.
"I gave no thought to art," he recalls.
But he did use his imagination to conjure his own reality, which is an artistic process.
"I didn't have much in the way of purchased goods," he says. "I didn't live near a store, so I wasn't one of those kids who could haunt a store after school. ... There was a world of objects out there, and I lived in a world of dirt and chickens and tractors."
One of his prized toys was actually a farm combine.
