About Rebecca Lewis:

Rebecca is self-taught textile artist, seamstress and printmaker living and working in Ipswich, Queensland. A degree in Environmental Management, along with a personal philosophy grounded in sustainability, informs the direction of Rebecca’s arts practice. She works predominantly with vintage fabrics, discarded craft supplies and found objects to create one-off or short-run garments, accessories and homewares.

Rebecca's first exhibition in Ipswich featured lino prints of local houses, she experimented with using these prints in unusual ways. This exploration is what led to the creation of her first outdoor collages and stop motion animation. In 2018 Rebecca won the Queensland Regional Art Awards – Digital Art prize for a stop motion film.

Rebecca says, 'I love teaching not only because it’s an opportunity to share the things I love but for the thrill of watching others experience that little ‘a hah’ moment when they start to realize their own creative potential.'
