Camille Rose Garcia
Camille Rose Garcia graduated from the University of California at Davis with an MFA in 1994, and her works have been displayed in galleries across the country. Garcia’s images exist in a fairytale wasteland and are often accompanied by stories paying homage to the shortcomings of capitalism. She has published two storybooks that feature her illustrations alongside her creative writing and has designed figurines of the storybook characters. Garcia’s writing reflects the playfulness of her youthful characters; she uses vivid and unique descriptions mixed with childish innocence and tones of hopeful sadness. Much like her writing style, Garcia’s artwork reflects a world that is desolate and disheartening, and yet there remains a glimpse of hope.
