Manuel Garza is one of the premier landscape artist of the Texas Hill Country working today. He is a self taught artist who has studied the works of Porforio Salinas and Robert Wood in the museums and galleries of Texas. His studio is filled with sketches and photos that result from the long hikes in the fields of bluebonnets in the spring, and from walks along the riverbanks in the fall as he looks for sightings of the Texas wildlife that appears so often in his paintings. His works can be found in the homes and offices of discriminating collectors of Western Art, among whom are John Connally, Lady Bird Johnson, Dolph Brisco and many others.
