Ricki Outis

As an artist working predominantly in screen printed and stitched textiles, I am interested in human form and expression as a subject. I find that the regular practice of life drawing adds to my skill base in the other work that I do, running print workshops for adults and children.

My passion for textiles runs to bookmaking, carnival, felting, dyeing and colouring of cloth.

Recently I have been drawing with the sewing machine instead of a pencil and find that it's possible to create a very expressive line through manipulating what is usually a very mechanical medium.
