I studied Illustration at Camberwell School of Art, now part of the University of the Arts. I am an experienced Illustrator, and having undertaken commissions for publishing, editorial, greeting cards, and wrapping paper in both the UK and USA.
I have travelled throughout Europe, India, Africa, and Turkey have been the main source of inspiration, as seen in my vibrant and richly textured work. I am fascinated by food, not only the finished presentations but the specific ingredients, packaging and the way in which they vary from one culture to the next. My exposure to the cuisines of the country including the fruits and vegetables and various cooking styles, provides me with an appreciation for the heritage of the culture. It is from that heritage that I draw my inspiration.
My working techniques include collage, watercolor, pen and ink, and hand lettering. My work is suitable for dinnerware/place mats, posters, licensing, and private commissions. Tess’s personal work focuses on the insect and amphibian world exploring the colours and rich textures in these jewel like creatures.
