JUDGE– Teresa Steinbach Garcia is a native Californian and Design graduate of The University of California at Davis, she 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. Theresa 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. TSteinbachGarciaART.com .
