This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted September 2005, is from a representative of the artist:

Danny is still active in the art world and still has his Gallery on Ocean Avenue in Carmel, California, which will be celebrating 46 years in the same location come October 2005.  His wife, Carmen passed away in June of 1990 and his children Linda and Gary are in professions of their own.
 
Danny started back into bronze sculpture almost 20 years ago and introduced the bronze Monterey Cypress tree with foilage including Jade baked on enamel and bronze.  It has been extremely popular from a small freestanding to extra large wall hangers, plus commission pieces which include his  paintings, which he never stopped doing. 

He, in fact, completed a full size portrait of St. Isadore for the new community room at St. Isadore Catholic Church in Danville, California.  He has remarried and with his wife, Carol, goes regularly to his gallery.

Biography from ArtSanDiego:
Danny Garcia was born in Monterey, California on April 23, 1929.  At the age of 8 he drew his first images on the seashore and wharfs of his hometown, and at age 13 he began receiving his first formal art instruction.  At an early age he worked for three years as a Laboratory Assistant to Ed Ricketts, the true-life model for the character of "Doc" in John Steinbeck's classic novel Cannery Row.

Garcia spent time in the US Navy during the Korean War aboard a naval destroyer. Afterwards he returned home to Monterey and studied art and architecture at Monterey Peninsula College. He graduated from that school in 1954.

His artistic style can be considered abstract impressionism.  His works are in collections in the United States, Europe, Southeast Asia, and the Far East and in the personal collections of Princess Margaret of Great Britain, and singers Trini Lopez, Frank Sinatra, and Dean Martin.  

His works are also in the permanent collections of the Kaiser Center Art Gallery in Oakland, the Museum of Natural History and Art in Holyoke, Massachusetts, and the Masur Museum of Art in Monroe, Louisiana.

He has been commissioned to do religious images for the Chapel of the Most Precious Blood in Concord, California, and St. Jude's Church in Marina, California.  He also is active in producing sculpture and ceramic works.  Garcia has participated in many Northern California exhibitions and has been an award-winning artist in many venues.

Garcia and his family, including his two children, Linda and Gary, live in Carmel overlooking the Pacific. Until recently he owned and operated the Garcia Gallery in Carmel, California.  He continues to be active in the Monterey Peninsula art community.
