I am a qualified teacher with a Post Graduate Certificate of Education, City and Guilds Silk Painting and many years experience of teaching watercolour and silk painting classes. I offer workshops or demonstrations for art groups.
In 2001 Tessa was elected member of the Society of Women Artists and the Society of Floral Painters and is a member of the Guild of Silk Painters. She paints flowers, landscapes and seascapes and a common thread running through her work is an interest in the patterns within the composition as well as a love of colour. She has exhibited at the Mall Galleries with the Society of Women Artists, Westminster Gallery with the Society of Botanical Artists, Mottisfont Abbey with the Society of Floral Painters, local galleries and in France and Switzerland as well as being an exhibiting member of the Dorking Group of Artists.
