Amy K. Garcia's Profile
I was born in 1975, and raised in a small community just outside of Chicago, Illinois by blue collar parents with hippy flair.
I have had a passion for the arts since I could first hold crayons. The story goes my mother handed me a pencil at 18 months of age and I drew the most magnificent tree for a toddler and then argued with her it was a horse…I guess it could be stated that I have always seen artistic expression as coloring “outside the lines”. I personally credit my long-term, sometimes tumultous, love affiar with the arts to the nirvana I experienced while viewing Marc Chagall’s “America Windows” at The Art Institute of Chicago when I was just five years old. The sheer bliss I felt in that moment is when I KNEW my life’s passion would be through creations made by my own hand. It would be a feeling I could only achieve through through artistic expression…
