TESSA PEARSON HAS A GENUINE PASSION FOR COLOUR AND IS inspired by pattern and rhythms IN THE NATURAL WORLD AROUND HER.
Tessa Pearson studied Printed Textile design at UCA Farnham and the Royal College
of Art, where she won the Courtaulds Prize and was commissioned by Liberty of London
to produce a collection of printed silks. As Tessa Lambert she opened her own print
studio and gallery in London and successfully sold her distinctive handpainted silks
around the world.

Since 2000 Tessa’s professional practise has centred on her continuing passion
for colour. Her work is an intuitive response to recollections of moments in time
and special places.
Tessa is currently focusing on watercolour painting, mixed media and printmaking, working in series to explore and revisit a theme many times.

Her bold abstract prints are mostly original monotypes using oil etching inks, built up in many layers and richly textured with additional elements of collage, hand painting and individual laser cut woodblock printed imagery. Her original techniques have evolved using vivid colours and bold abstract mark making to express the physical and emotional impact she experiences when immersed in a wonderful exotic garden or dramatic patchwork landscape.
