Mary Karavos

Mary Karavos describes her practice as Fine Art Paper Collage. Her artistic foundation began in painting, drawing and sculpture, but she attributes her time spent in Florence, Italy for influencing her unique artistic expression. She was able to create and under-stand her own art form using only torn pieces of the finest imported papers made in Japan, Nepal, Korea and Thailand.

"I am inspired by the process of exploration and spontaneity. Layering piece by piece the depth and detail continue to surprise. The natural world and music are also an end-less source of inspiration."
-Mary Karavos

Karavos has been honoured with the “prix du jury” at the Societe’ National des Beaux Arts, founded in 1862, at the Carousel du Louvre, Paris, and received the bronze medal from the Arts-Science-Lettres Academy of Paris. Her work has been internationally ex-hibited in Monaco, France, Italy, Chicago and the Affordable Art Fairs in New York, Lon-don, Singapore and Amsterdam. Locally, Karavos has been an award recipient twice at the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair and she exhibits annually at the One of a Kind Winter show and the Artist Project.

Mary Karavos currently lives and works in Guelph, ON.
