Jamey Garza is originally from Austin, Texas. He received his BFA in painting from the University of Texas at Austin in 1986 and his MFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1990. Constance Holt-Garza is originally from San Francisco, California. She owned and operated Salon de The, a boutique clothing store in San Francisco, from 1993-1998, and designed a line of clothing sold exclusively through the store.
Constance and Jamey met in 1996 as Garza was showing his paintings in San Francisco galleries while simultaneously building custom furniture for retail spaces and restaurants. The duo moved to Marfa in 2003 to design and build beds for the Thunderbird Hotel in Marfa, Texas. Once there, the couple decided Marfa was home, and began work on what is now the Garza Marfa line of furniture.
