Garin studied at Pratt and then at the Art Students League. He studied there with David Leffell and Ted Seth Jacobs. He began a career in illustration, but wanted to do his own art for a living as he was painting for himself when not doing his illustration work. In 1990 he moved out of the city to New Winsor, NY. Where he has restored an old post and beam home and turned the barn into a studio equipped for producing enormous mural canvases.
To get the work as a mural painter it is necessary to do a presentation drawing to show the potential client what your completed mural will look like. Here is another of those below for a public mural in Washington called "How We Live".
