Catarina Garcia is a young artist from Lisbon, Portugal. From the beginning, her work has always featured figure drawing as a starting point. Her interest in drawing is a focus in her portrait work and paintings, where composition is of singular importance. Her most recent paintings belong to a universe where dreams and imagination meet, creating stories from imagery.
Catarina is currently finishing a Masters in Drawing at the Fine Arts Faculty of Lisbon, where, in 2008, she earned a degree in Fine Arts Painting. Her studies took a specialization in printmaking. In 2007/08, she was awarded a Erasmus Scholarship at the Accademia Albertina delle Belle Arti, in Turin, Italy.
