KATTI STA. ANA is a recipient of a prestigious Cultural Center of the Philippines Thirteen Artists Award in the year 2000. A graduate of the University of the Philippines College of Fine Arts (UPCFA) in Diliman, where 

she majored in Painting, she is now a senior lecturer of the UPCFA's Department of Studio Arts and Masters in Fine Arts Program. In 2009-10, she received a Fulbright scholarship to take an M.A. in Community Arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, U.S.A. Katti served as Baltimore Clayworks’ community artist-in-residence where she learned ceramics while studying community arts formally at MICA.

Katti finds purpose and meaning in teaching art. “As much as I can, I engage people in understanding social and environmental issues so that they can reflect upon their own lifestyle and actions. I introduce social practice to my students, hoping for them to learn ways of making art that is responsive to the world around them.”  Prior to teaching in UP Diliman, she taught in UP Baguio and the Ateneo de Manila University. 

Katti is founder of the Firefly Brigade, which advocates for the use of the bicycle as part of a sustainable transportation agenda. In her quest to make sense of Metro Manila's urban problems, she took up and finished graduate studies in Urban and Regional Planning in UP. In 1994-95 she served as a Jesuit volunteer in Daet, Camarines Norte, working in a nutrition program for malnourished children.
