Tessa's work has become a regular feature in the British Mountaineering
Council's national publication 'Summit' magazine. Last year Tessa was invited by
Kendal Mountain Festival to commemorate 100 years of the classic rock climb
Central Buttress on Scafell in the Lake District. As part of the commission
Tessa's markmaking, handwriting and designing style was used through out the
promotional material for the festival.
Another highlight of last year was the YHA (Youth Hostel Association) commissioning Tessa to create a bespoke piece for permanent exhibition in Black Sail, a highly unique hostel nestled in the valleys of the Lake District. The piece is on permanent exhibition there for walkers, runners and climbers taking refuge to enjoy.
My work is about my love of being outside in beautiful, natural surroundings. I'm an avid rock climber and have been since I was young. One of the things that I enjoy most about climbing is the amazing places it can take you to. My work ties together my passion for these landscapes along with my enjoyment of drawing.
