Daniela Garcia is a first generation Mexican American artist. Originally from the Antelope Valley California, she spent her childhood living between the rural town of Lake Los Angeles (CA) and her fathers' home town, Las Canas Guanajuato, Mexico. As a child she was constantly surrounded by immigrant culture, both the artist' parents were the first to immigrate to the United States in the 1980's. Dani works mainly in drawing and painting, creating work responding to her immersion within Mexican immigrant culture and her dual cultural identity. She was the first to pursue and receive a higher education in her family. She received her B.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from California State University Long Beach. Dani received her start in the arts from her high school art teacher Bruce Harris, this lead her to purse a teaching credential in Secondary Education to pass on the opportunity given to her. Dani is a strong believer in Arts Education and the importance of exposing students to artist of color as well as female artist and the potential to tell their story through art.
She is currently teaching art at the High School level in Thousand Oaks and continues to make work from her home studio.
