Painter, Illustrator, and toy-maker Camille Rose Garcia was born in Los Angeles, California. The child of a Mexican activist filmmaker father and a muralist/painter mother, she apprenticed at age 14 working on murals with her mother while growing up in the generic suburbs of Orange County, visiting Disneyland and going to punk shows with the other disenchanted youth of that era. Garcia’s layered, broken narrative paintings of wasteland fairy tales are influenced by William Burroughs’ cut-up writings and surrealist film, as well as vintage Disney and Fleischer cartoons. Her work has been displayed internationally and featured in numerous magazines including Juxtapoz, Hi Fructose, Rolling Stone, and Modern Painter. She is included in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Resnick Collection, and the San Jose Museum of Art, which held a retrospective of her work in 2007 entitled "Tragic Kingdom" accompanied by a catalog of the same name. She recently illustrated two classic children's books, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Snow White", and is currently writing and illustrating a third.
