Diana Garcia is an artist and actress based in Venice, CA. Her imagined amalgam creatures grace walls all over the world. When she's not busy giving a Ted talk, installing new murals, or acting in critically acclaimed feature films -- you can find her amidst her Venice abode, conjuring up new visions.
This woman is a sincere testament to her motto "Be What You Dream", which is subtly inked under all her work.
