The Art of Author/Artist Gil Garciawww.ArtPal.com/gilgarcia40
Being born to a family of artist, there was no question what path my career would take. The biggest influences who steered me to a creative life were my mother Belia (a water colorist), my father Benito (a sculptor of folk art), my brother Tim (an acrylic artist), my brother Paul (Sculptor an acrylic painter of modern art, and my good friend Dag Kolderup an Impressionist.
Throughout my working career, creative positions were handed me, such as: Reporter for the Stars and Strips News paper, National Advertising production Mgr., twenty-five years as a Restaurant Designer, and Official portrait artist for the 2002/2003 Western Conference Basketball Champions Sacramento Kings.
In 1998 I retired to my art, and in 2009 I laid down my brush to write my first book_A Walk Back Home that was published in December of 2014. It can be purchased at Amazon, Kindle and Barns and Knoble.com
