Katey Rissi is a Pacific-Northwest-based printmaker, textile artist and educator. Her work explores themes of bio-regionalism, ecology, time, rewilding, and enchantment. In terms of process, she is focused on slow-making practices like analog (and anachronistic) image-making techniques, mending textiles, and making art materials out of things gathered and grown.
Katey holds a BFA in graphic design from Western Michigan University with a focus in photography and printmaking, and studied screenprinting at the Art Student’s League of Denver. She teaches art classes to both youth and adults, and has worked in program planning, as an elementary school art teacher, and as a teaching artist for the past 6 years. She is currently the class coordinator and print studio manager at Alchemy Art Center.
