Teresa Steinbach Garcia – A native Californian and a Design graduate of The University of California at Davis, Teresa Steinbach-Garcia works in a painterly realistic style. Inspired by many, many artists, she combines her background in watercolor with pastels to capture the nuance of light and place, and interpret impressions of the man-made and nature-made worlds. Teresa worked in both The Graphic Design and Fine Art realm before devoting much of her energy to raising a family on 5 acres in the rural countryside of Wilton, California. With the kids raised she is devoting more time to teaching and exploring all things art. Learn more at TSteinbachGarciaART.com
