Katherine Marmaras is a visual artist of Greek heritage working from Melbourne and Geelong.

Her practice incorporates printmaking, collage, mark-making, textiles, and ceramics and is deeply influenced by vibrant childhood memories of visiting fabric stores with her tailor father, and embroidered tapestries and lacework created by her mother, aunts and grandmothers.

Her work has been exhibited widely in select group and award exhibitions including the Burnie Print Prize, Northern Beaches Artist Book Award, and Silk Cut Award for Linocuts and is held in private and public collections including the National Gallery of Australia.

Katherine says, “I collect and repurpose objects found in nature and other disparate items including wallpaper and fabric remnants connecting them through the meditative act of mark-making.”
