Tessa Nicole began painting for the first time in 2015 & has been working solely with palette knife since January of 2017. Beginning with oils & self-taught from the very beginning, she has remained 100% original in all of her techniques, applications, & styles. In July of 2020, Tessa officially coined her original style - Textured Pointillism. Working solely with palette knife, she has found a way to incorporate the often-forgotten Post-Impressionist movement of Pointillism, & is giving it new life. With a passion for traveling, but an innate love for her home in Arizona, Tessa draws inspiration from places near & far…
BEGINNINGS & BACKGROUND
"My life has been influenced by The Arts from as early as I can remember. I was always artistic growing up, but strictly in the musical sense of the definition. Singer, songwriter, classical pianist; these were my titles up until age 17 & music was the chosen career path since age 8. Never would I have guessed that one day, my passion for music would morph into a passion for visual arts. February of 2015, I recorded my song "Painted Life", knowing a music video was going to follow. Bouncing idea after idea, I knew that the only thing promising to grab attention was actually painting in the video. Having never painted in my life, I decided to pick up a brush and teach myself. From my first oil painting attempt on February 15th, up until March 19th when the video was recorded, I had successfully taught myself to paint in oils and was able to live paint in the music video.
The part of the story that I have yet to share with anyone, up until very recently, is the background of how Art has genuinely saved my life. Without the influence & outlet of music & painting, I would not be standing where I am today.
I am still I the process of writing that story, so for the time being, I am taking in the energy of the healing I've received thus far. I'm so excited to share my story soon."
