Biography

Servicing the Creative Industry for More Than Two Decades

My name is Joel Garza and my life journey began in Mexico. I discovered my creativity by doodling on my Parent’s kitchen walls at the age of four with crayons. That gave me the freedom to express myself in the most Artistic way and not to mention learning the rules of the house. Shortly there after, I was on my way to school, where I learned proper techniques in drawing and painting.

I acquired a degree in Visual Communications at the Art Institute of Houston. After completing college, my major lessons and experiences come from life and it’s wonderful opportunities. I have since worked in the Web Development/Design, Social Media Management and Art Direction fields for several years now. I have explored my creativity, passion for painting and the Visual Arts and I am currently sharing my creative talents in Houston, Texas.
