ABOUT CARLOS DE LA GARZA

  • I’ve been an elementary art teacher for 21 years.   Several years ago, I decided to get serious about my art and trying to become an illustrator.  I began illustrating a book for a local author.  It was my first real step forward and a realistic look at the time and dedication it would take to make this dream a reality.  Thanks to the SCBWI website, I was approached by Clear Fork Publishing and asked to illustrate the upcoming book, Daddy Can You See the Moon, by Gayle C. Krause.  I am so happy to know something I created is going to be published and made available for others to see.  If I ever had doubts that this was something I wanted to do, they are gone.  This is what I want to do with my life.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I love to draw.  I remember painting way back in kindergarten, and I’ve never lost that love to make art.  Even at my most frustrating moments, I’d rather be making art than doing anything else.
