Teresa Steinbach-Garcia

A native Californian and a design graduate of the University of California at Davis, I work in a painterly realistic style to record my world be it landscape, still life or portrait.

Inspired by artists as varied as Andrew Wyeth and Kim Lordier I combine a background in watercolor with a new interest in pastels to capture the nuance of light and place, and interpret impressions of the man made and nature-made worlds.

I worked in both The Graphic Design and Fine Art world  before devoting much of my energy to raising a family on 5 acres in the rural countryside of Wilton California. Raising kids, growing crops, tending a small orchard and observing the intricacies of a praying Mantis, the last light on a neighbors Barn on a cold winter Evening to the  translucency of a dried Tomatillo husk makes for a rich life!. With the independence of my children I'm Teaching, Creating and Embracing the World of Art again.

Contact me for upcoming workshops and events:

I am a member of the California Watercolor Association, Sacramento Fine Arts Center and W.A.S.H. as well as The Sacramento Chapter of the California Art Club, and the Pastel Society of the West Coast
