Rebeka Garcia was born in Kamloops, and raised in Vancouver, BC. She watched her sister paint and create art while she was growing up and dreamed of one day being able to do the same.
Art was never a focus in her life until just over a year ago she was diagnosed with a sleeping disorder due to her overnight work schedule. On the weekends she would not be able to switch back to sleeping at night. She then decided one night, instead of staring at the ceiling thinking of sleep; she would take out an old canvas print and paint over it.
This soon became a habit, and Rebeka would take out her canvas and paint till dawn to pass the sleepless nights. After catching the eye of friends and family she was encouraged to pursue her artistic expression.
She has no formal art training and no consistent genre of painting. Her art follows her emotions and inspirations in each moment.
