Using traditional materials and traditional Pueblo pottery techniques, along with various printmaking techniques, including lithography, serigraphy, and intaglio etching, Garcia feels that it is important to keep alive the ceramic traditions that have been passed down to him since time immemorial. Garcia feels that these materials and techniques connect him to his ancestral past and landscape, but also connects him and his future generations to their Tewa cultural traditions. The printmaking media is another way of creating and teaching these stories and traditions to a greater audience. Garcia received his BFA from the University of New Mexico and MFA in Printmaking at the University of Wisconsin.
