About artyTess

I am an award winning international selling artist based in London.

I was born and grew up in South Africa and have always maintained a strong connection with Africa. This influences my choices of colour, design and subject matter.

I like to use a wide range of media including oil pastels, acrylics and inks with different techniques to create vibrant ‘impactful’ images.

My first solo show was in London in 2013, followed by one in Spain in 2017. I also exhibited in Cambridge Maryland (USA).

I exhibit annually at the Mall Galleries in London where I was awarded first prize at the Pastel Show in 2018.

I am now represented by a gallery in Saugatuck Michigan (USA).

My Giclée prints and greetings cards are also very popular and I have retail outlets in the UK, USA and Kenya.

I am passionate about art that captures the viewer’s attention and my main aim is to provide affordable original art for a wide audience. It is thrilling to have many supportive collectors around the world.
