Artist Bio:

Native Californian Joe Garcia is an established landscape and wildlife artist living and painting near the small mountain town of Julian, California. The natural setting amidst oaks and pines, and the golden hills of Southern California provide endless inspiration and subjects for his art. Joe earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an advertising/illustration emphasis from the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. He worked as an illustrator and graphic designer for 13 years then left the commercial field to focus full time on the fine art side of his career.

Today Joe continues to paint in oil and watercolor, emphasizing composition, value and spontaneity in each medium. His works reflect his love of nature in landscapes, birds, mammals and a variety of other themes on location and in the studio. Garcia shows in exhibitions across the country, and his original paintings and limited edition prints may be found in galleries and private collections throughout the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Europe.
