Kathy Garcia is a ceramic artist based in Georgia. Her work is primarily influenced by her family's ancestry and she finds inspiration in the journeys each generation has taken. She is also influenced by the impact of her upbringing as a person of color in a predominantly white, Southern conservative community. She earned her BFA in Ceramics from Georgia State University in December 2017. In early 2018, she was awarded with the 2018 Artaxis Fellowship to attend a summer workshop at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.
