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 hand painted silks around the world.
In recent years Tessa has been using printmaking and mixed media as her preferred medium, working almost exclusively on paper creating bold abstract paintings in watermedia, silkscreen painted monotypes and monoprints using her original woodblock techniques.
Renowned for her exceptional use of colour, current work has evolved from sketches of patterns and colour experienced in inspirational gardens and interpreted in her very recognisable style.
She is chairman of the Fountain Gallery, an artist co-operative gallery at Hampton Court, Surrey, and exhibits widely in galleries and art fairs in the UK and internationally.
Tessa has been a visiting lecturer in printed textiles at Loughborough and St.Martins College of Art, UCA Farnham and the London College of Fashion. She occasionally works as a part time tutor in painting, and is a visiting printmaking tutor at Ochre Print Studios.
