Tessa McIntyre lives and works in North West Dorset. She trained at the Bournemouth College of Art from 1954 to 1958 and again from 1962 to 1963. For the following 30 years she taught art in Secondary Schools in Southern England and at various Adult Education Centres.

Her work may be described as strongly graphic representations of landscape – free flowing, with a bold use of bright vibrant colour as well as cleverly subtle colour. Methods of work include oil, watercolour and mixed media in addition to traditional lino cut and screen print methods. Commissions can be undertaken by prior arrangement with the artist.

Tessa has exhibited previously at the following locations:

Bankside Gallery – London

West of England Royal Academy – Bristol

Poole Printmakers – Poole

Guggleton Gallery – Stalbridge

Shaftesbury Arts Centre – Shaftesbury

Laurence Mitchell Gallery – Isle Of Wight

Dorset Art Weeks (DAWS) – Dorset
