Lorrie Garcia: A Marian santera

Lorrie Garcia carvs a new bulto by hand outside her home on Sunday (Sept. 6).

Some artists discover their vocation early in life. Others blossom somewhat later, embracing a second or third career and excelling at it. Lorrie Garcia, a master santera from Peñasco, is living proof that success is worth the wait.

Garcia taught at the Peñasco High School for 25 years.
