Regters was born in Dordrecht. According to his biographer Jan van Gool, his parents moved when he was two years old to Arnhem, where he grew up.[1] He was first sent to learn painting from Ten Haeg, and then moved to Rotterdam at age 20 to study for two years with Meyer.[1] He then moved to Amsterdam and first went to work for Wannenberg before becoming the pupil of Jan Maurits Quinkhard for 5 years.[1] At the end of this period he was an able portrait painter, and Van Gool visited his studio in 1751 in Amsterdam where he saw a good full-length portrait of the painter Ludolf Bakhuizen and a large group portrait that he was working on of the regents of the Amsterdam Almoezeniers orphanage.

According to the RKD he was a pupil of Jan Maurits Quinkhard, and he worked in Dordrecht, Amsterdam, Arnhem and Rotterdam.[2] He died in Amsterdam.
