Artist Angelita Garcia
I grew up in a small town and moved to Edmonton when I was 9 years old. Being in a small town at such a young age, there wasn't much to do. I was in Piano, swimming and was addicted to my Colouring books. I had stacks of them. My interest kept growing in colouring, drawing and music. More recently, over the past ten years, I more frequently began experimenting with painting, using both acrylic and oils at home. It was so different, which I became completely fascinated with. From the history to the techniques and styles used. My appreciation for art history has grown over the years. In 2009, I travelled through Europe and was able to go to Paris. I went to the Louvre and it was amazing. I would love to go back and spend days there. Last year I started to art take classes with Svetlana, since then I have learned so much and have improved my skills. She is a wonderful teacher and amazing painter, and one day I can only hope to be as talented as she is.
