Although he studied art at Buffalo State College, Reina's education really began at home; his father is a sculptor and was chairman of the Art department at Nassau Community College, and his mother ran an art gallery in Cold Spring Harbor, New York.
Another big influence in Reina’s approach to making art is his friend and mentor, Long Island abstract painter Stan Brodsky, who he has studied with for several years.
