Helen Shafer Garcia

Living and working in North San Diego County, Helen is an Artist, Illustrator, Arts Instructor and Gardener. She received her BA in Art from California State University, Long Beach and has created Corporate and Magazine Illustrations for over 23 years. Helen’s paintings and assemblages are expressively drawn encounters with paint, color and texture that invoke the spirit for an intriguing visual journey. Some of the images recount visuals from Mexico, New Zealand and other lands intertwining legends, flora, fauna and icons. Her works involve the process of transference- subtraction and addition of paint and found objects. She’s currently working with watercolor, pastel and mixed media creating contemporary images.
