Tessa Pearson

The Artist’s Garden

Tessa Pearson has always been in love with colour,and has spent her life seeing the world as a myriad of pattern and captivating images.  Marvelling at patches of brilliant yellow in a dramatic patchwork green landscape, the glimpse of a violet pot against a cobalt blue wall will thrill her.

Trained in textile design, her influences have been many, from Matisse to Hodgkin and the bold colourists of mid twenty first century painters Patrick Heron and Albert Irvin.

Tessa sees gardens as living paintings and they have been the inspiration she has returned to many times. Creating her own garden has been an influential process informing her current work. As the garden emerges each year she repeatedly immerses herself in the planting, responding to the colour, rhythms and characteristics that excite. The time spent drawing and painting these moments in her sketchbook builds a rich recollection of images to create larger scale paintings and working with unpredictable watercolour and mixed media ensures the liveliness and energy captured from direct observation.
