About Me

My name is Tessah and I love working with my hands. Whether coding or crafting, I need to make things. As an artist, I work mostly in portraiture using inks and pens, but I also really enjoy photography, painting and installation. As a designer, I work mostly in graphics and web development. When I'm not designing or sketching, I might be posting on the Spotify community boards, playing video games, or attending a concert.
