About Athena Kolokotronis

Athena lives and works in Hudson, New York. She began martha makes designs at the end of 2020 after reevaluating what both her and her husband wanted for themselves out of their chosen professional lives. Throughout her time in school and early in her career as a graphic designer, she gravitated towards print design, papermaking, and book arts so when she had the opportunity to buy a restored tabletop platen press in October of 2020 - she jumped at the chance and has been printing ever since!
