Katherine Warinner is an artist working primarily with printmaking. Her monotypes—a hybrid of painting and printmaking, digital imagery and photographic processes—reinvent traditional forms of printing with modern technology. Inspired by a love of design, the landscape and her garden, she seeks to illuminate and elevate the timeless beauty of the natural world. She has been an artist in residence at Kala Art Institute and InCahoots Residency where she prints her large scale works on paper. Her work is in private and corporate collections. Born in the midwest, where she attended college and graduate school, she has lived in Marin for over 30 years.
“Art making is like collecting; as a child I loved to collect insects, leaves and rocks. Each new addition leads to another and there is a kind of thrill to that attainment. In the making of prints, each one leads me to a new place and from there I expand. There is always the question of when to stop because it is impossible to erase in printmaking! A print can go too far and collapse or balance on the edge of beauty. That edge is what keeps me working.”
