Guided by Nature. Inspired by Color. Influenced by Movement. Enlivened by Creating.
Sarah Janece Garcia is an artist currently residing in Denver, CO. She works primarily in watercolor to create unique wildlife portraits and nature inspired paintings. Sarah’s work is influenced by her passion for art, attraction to color, and love for nature’s beauty. The energetic movements in her organic abstractions, along with vivid colors, and a focus on intricate detailing allows her work to capture nature in both literal and abstract ways.
Sarah’s paintings have been showcased at various group exhibitions throughout the United States and international exhibits in South Africa (Johannesburg), United Kingdom (London), Helsinki (Finland) and France (Paris). Such exhibits include being selected as a finalist of the Hunting Art Prize which is a prestigious annual competition with the most generous annual award in North America. Sarah’s work has won several awards, including having a painting designated as the grand prize winner in an art and design competition hosted by Uncommon Goods. After winning the design challenge, Uncommon Goods chose to offer multiple pieces of her work to their customers. These selected paintings have since been featured seasonally in the Uncommon Goods catalog which reaches millions worldwide. Sarah's unique point of view, attention to detail, and bold artistic expression has caught the eye of many and her work continues to travel worldwide to reach collectors. One such notable collection her work is a part of is the GOLDEN (Golden Artist Colors, Inc.) collection in New York. Sarah’s current line of watercolor work continues to be juried and accepted into nationally ranked art festivals and she has gallery representation in Austin, Texas, Grand Junction, Colorado and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
"The delicate mix of strength and gentleness that can be found in nature really fascinates me and I enjoy exploring this balance in my work. Nature’s beauty enriches my soul and continues to bring me comfort and happiness at the precise moment I need it. I feel very strongly that when I show love and respect for nature, nature always returns the favor."
