I was born and raised in Christchurch and have moved around and throughout New Zealand over the past few years to finally settle in peaceful little Twizel in the centre of the South Island.

I have always enjoyed sitting down and creating a new piece of work but until now I had never had the time to really invest in it. As we all know its hard and a thin line to make a living out of selling our creativity but I have decided to take the time to do it anyway, even if it fails. There's a sense of achievement after every piece that comes together well and you cant put a price on that.

I have recently been getting requests for animal portraits, some of which are personal companions,
A great gift to give to someone I think.

Thanks for taking the time to read about me,
Tessa Symons
