• The Seastrand, Scarborough

    My family and I have decided to creat a new and exciting venture in our home town of Scarborough. The Seastrand is a kiosk serving locally made ice cream, locally roasted coffees and teas and locally made biscuits- with a beautiful seaview from our terrace and gallery area inside.

    There will be participatory events and rolling exhibitions for artists throughout the summer.

    So, whilst I will continue to accept commissions, I will be concentrating my efforts on The Seastrand and hope to see you there!

    You can follow my blog on facebook.com/theseastrand and on twitter @theseastrand

    See you soon,

    Tess

  • Studio closes it's doors.

    For two years, the studio is where I have drawn, painted and made and it was very sad to close the door for the last time earlier this month.

    But plans are afoot for a new and exciting venue in Scarborough later this year- of course, I'll keep you posted about that.

    All that is left is to wish the new tennant every success in her venture.

  • Wardle & Jones- Mini project.

    The very lovely bookshop Wardle and Jones which very recently threw open it's doors in Scarbrough's bar Street, very kindly asked me to create a new design for them to use on bookmarks.

    How marvelous and I loved every moment of designing it for them. The inspiration came on a dog walk on Wheatcroft Hill, looking out towards Scarborough whilst my poor, daft dog tried to catch a little game for breakfast. He wasn't even close to success, bless him!
