Jenna Garcia is an abstract figure expressionist painter who specializes in large to life size oil paintings. The self taught artist was born 1982 Phoenix Arizona where she now lives with her wife and their two daughters. Her artist process began at the age of 16 when she discovered her love to paint. Inspired by a famous photographer Robert Mapplethorpe and all time legend Andy Warhol, Jenna painted her first painting titled ‘SHE’ a monochromatic blue nude figurative piece which remains in the artists private collection today. A painting done at such a rebellious time in her life, Jenna did not paint again until her early adult years in 2003 and invested in herself as a full time artist in 2015. Her painting ‘SHE’ gave birth to Jenna’s art business She Collections, selling vibrant abstract figurative work.
Jenna has shown her artwork in group and solo exhibitions in Arizona and California. She has gained private collectors and many followers on social media. A painting of hers recently published on the cover of Facing Love & Pain A collection of poems by author Stephany Medina
