Meet Janet M. Garcia
I am a contemporary traditional and digital artist. I was born in Puerto Rico, where I studied drawing and painting with artist Andrés Bueso. Since I was young, I felt passionate towards art; drawing and painting, mostly with oils, acrylics, pastel, and ink.
I moved to the U.S.A. in 1986. Since that time, I’ve been working with computers and has rendered desktop publishing services and design to several religious and commercial entities. I have also worked in the design of CDs, cassettes, video covers, and websites for Christian ministries and churches as well as in the production of video presentations and whiteboard and explainer videos.
With the evolution of computers and software, I felt it was time to merge my God-given skills as a natural media artist with my other skills and knowledge of computers, creating beautiful Digital Paintings as well (original digital fine arts painted by hand, without the use of any computer automated filters or scripts) following the same techniques learned as a natural media painter, but instead of using a brush, using a Stylus Pen and a Digitizing Tablet to create her beautiful Digital Fine Arts. So I can proudly say that I can create both beautiful traditional media artwork and digital artwork.
My passion is portraiture and, although I mainly focus on drawing and painting portraits, I also enjoy painting other subjects. I studied portraiture under the direction of artists Larry Gerber and Kris Smith in Boca Raton, Florida.
