Katharine Lark DeLamater is an artist and papermaker who shares her time between Madison, Wisconsin and Iowa City, Iowa, where she is a first year MFA student at the University of Iowa Center for the Book. Katharine received the Iowa Arts Fellowship to support her studies, as well as the Joseph Skinner Fellowship from Mount Holyoke College, her alma mater. At Mount Holyoke, Katharine studied with Tatiana Ginsberg and Rie Hachiyanagi. Her work has been featured in Hand Papermaking’s Intergenerationality portfolio, as well as the Arts and Literature Laboratory’s innaugural Community Shared Art portfolio. She has taught classes for Polka Press as well as the Madison Public Library’s BUBBLER program.
In her studio practice, Katharine rotates between many process based media: hand papermaking, printmaking, and textile arts. Papers, prints, and fabrics are dyed, embedded, drawn on, and collaged to create a final object. She is influenced by her family’s Pennsylvania Dutch roots, as well as investigating ornament, pattern, and architectural spaces.
