Collection: Tess Guinery
Her home and art studio are nestled in a diversely creative town in the Northern Rivers, Australia. She is a mother to three spirited daughters and married to the love of her life who works in the film industry as a travelling stuntman, this path has allowed Tess and her family to live in some fascinating places all around the world which has lent to her daily practice of noticing beauty in the commonplace.
Within the paradigm of Tess’ expression, there is a strong sense of communion with dance and movement where it intersects and holds hands with so many other parts of her work acting almost like an electric undercurrent. We see dance being the framework that moves her art from a flat dimension into something that has a body whether it be expressed through words, paint or design, we can see dance is the anchor.
Tess spent her post-dance career studying design at The Karl Von Busse of Design, Tess’ freelance design business was established upon graduation in 2013 and grew from strength to strength as she shared her work across multiple platforms. Opportunities appeared endless for the 7 years she sowed into designing, but a niggling feeling that this was not her ‘forever’ calling, prompted Tess to pause this course, unpack her longings with a renewed conviction to explore and release her inner artist.
Tenacious about growth, Tess is committed to being as water as she adheres to the ever-changing phases of life choosing to embrace the creative process as a road map to all the intricacies and rhythms that life brings. She has an unwavering belief that “creative expression will forever grow and change - but her inner purpose will forever remain the same”.
