Elegant, sacred, centered, focus, mastery, tender, feminine, pure, powerful, colorful, heart energy, passion. These words apply to her paintings, but they could also very well characterize the person Tessa. When thoughts, feelings, action and ‘speaking’ / ‘giving expression to’ merge both person and painting are one, I can only be grateful for the possibility of such a pure ‘soul pearl’ to hang in (the heart of) my house. Her work inspires me and I admire the evolution in her work. Soul in motion; ever closer to Home.
