The Conceptual Story

Landmark Arts, Teddington, London is such a beautiful piece of architecture in itself and my work looked stunning sat at the alter. The church was filled with the most beautiful mix of colour texture and design. The visitors were […]

Collaborative work

Working with others inspires and enlightens. Sometimes it’s learning new skills, seeing a process through fresh eyes, bouncing ideas off one another or just enjoying having some company! It was also a compliment to be asked by Bruce to design a new show for him at Mount Edgcumbe, Cornwall where he exhibited with Miss Ivy’s […]

A little taste of what is to come. My face book page  https://www.facebook.com/TessaJaneFineArtTextiles tells the story and I am spending a lot of time rebuilding this site and adding art work for sale. It takes as much time marketing as creating and I really wish I could clone myself to get all the jobs done […]

Events, inspiration, News, photography | Comments Off on Insideout- My trip in Ghost with Adam Chodzko

My trip underground with Adam Chodzko in Ghost In the dark confined space I took comfort from the deep resonating sounds of the voice. It was an intimate space, deeply secretive and gave light to ones innermost fears and thoughts. “This is where my father died”. It was a statement. Not one that invited comment or […]
