Scherezade Garcia was born in Santo Domingo. As a child she became involved in the arts by participating in projects that involved mural painting with visual artists Elias Delgado and Nidia Serra. She studied at Altos de Chavon/The School of Design, an affiliate of Parsons School of Design. In 1986, she moved to New York as a student at Parsons The New School of Design, where she obtained the Parsons Institutional Scholarship and the Dana Foundation Work Grant. Her work as a fine arts artist has been continuously exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean since 1990. Her work frequently evokes memories of faraway home and the hopes and dreams that accompany planting roots in a new land. Garcia's work has been shown at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington, DC, El Museo del Barrio in NYC, The Housatonic Museum of Art in Connecticut, and El Museo de Arte Modernoin Santo Domingo. Her solo exhibitions have included "Paradise redefined" at Lehman College Art Gallery in the Bronx; "Island of many Gods" at the Salena Gallery, and "Theories of Freedom" at The Humanities Art Gallery at Long Island University in Brooklyn.
