Robert Garcia -The '41 Cardinal
Robert Garcia

From Humble beginnings in Texas, Robert Garcia moved with his family to Toledo, Ohio. His love of nature, learning and discovery led him to pursue a career in art encompassing many styles and media. His interest in art began as a child hobby, eventually leading to more serious study of art at the University of Toledo where he earned a fellowship to The Yale Sumer School of Music and Art in Norfolk, Connecticut. Following this experience he began entering his work in local and regional juried exhibition.

Bobís work has been acquired in the Toledo Museum of Artís permanent collection among many other public and private collections.
