New BioI had to put together a new bio for the back of my prints and any art that I am going to sell and just finished it tonight. I am finally to the point where I think I feel comfortable listing a few prints on etsy and then going from there and seeing what happens. Here it is.
Originally from Santa Cruz, California Leah Garcia is now local to Portland, Oregon. She has been employed as an commercial artist or photographer since 1999 with no more than a few art classes as formal education. She has continued to grow and progress her skill during her day jobs and contracted work as well as at home. After trying out many facets of the art world she found herself most inspired to create illustrations and paintings.
Leah primarily works in traditional mediums such as acrylic, oils and ink but often includes many medias in a single piece. Subjects vary from peaceful sky scapes to intricate high contrast illustrations. If one thing is certain, her pieces have a vivid color palette and a pleasant flow.
Original art work is available on her web site and prints of new work created in house can be found on etsy.com. Framed prints of Leah’s photography is also available at imagekind.com along with a wider variety of her older fine art as well.
