About Tessa Nicole

Hello! My name is Tessa Nicole.

I am a self-taught impressionist palette knife oil painter, & have been painting for 6 years now. I'd like to give a little background on my styles/techniques & my beginnings as an oil painter:


Using solely palette knife, I create lively and textured pieces that capture the eye and fill any space with light. My impressionistic style is inspired by my two favorite artists: Claude Monet & Vincent Van Gogh. With the free-flowing expression of Monet, and the texturized "touchability" of Van Gogh, my goal in creating any painting is to open the eyes to a bright and talkative movement. Today's oil paintings are screaming to be revitalized to a more expressive, more exuberant state.


Tessa Nicole was always artistic growing up, but strictly in the musical sense of the definition. Singer, songwriter, classical pianist; these were the descriptions of Tessa up until she was 17 years old. Never would she (or anyone) have guessed that one day, her passion for music would soon morph into her passion for art. February of 2015, Tessa recorded her song "Painted Life", knowing a music video was going to follow. She bounced idea after idea, but knew that the only thing promising to grab attention was if she painted in the video. Having never painted in her life, she decided to pick up a brush and teach herself. From her first oil painting attempt on February 15th, up until March 19th when the video was recorded, Tessa had successfully taught herself to paint in oils and was able to live paint in her "Painted Life" music video. 5 years later and here we are; Tessa has momentously improved in her craft and, in September of '18, she turned her passion into her career. Still having never taken a class, she is continuously self-developing her techniques, styles, and abilities. ​

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


Tessa creates her oil paintings off of "Mind & Memory" - places she has seen in person & places she wishes existed.


Using solely palette knife, Tessa creates lively & textured oil paintings in an impressionistic style.
