Living on the edge of Exmoor, Tess Armitage finds inspiration in wild and untouched landscapes. She works in an intuitive way, exploring paint through mark making, scratching, splattering and palette knife work. Her work captures the beauty of landscape, as well as evoking the atmosphere and spirit of the place.

Tess studied Textile Design in Nottingham gaining a BA (Hons) in 1991. She taught Art and Design until 1998 when she started painting on a full-time basis using her experiences in Africa and Nepal as inspiration for her work. Tess began to sell her work professionally in the late 1990s working as an Artist-in-Residence in a Manchester gallery. Here her work was mainly commissioned by large corporate companies and was sold throughout the UK and abroad. Having returned to Somerset, Tess regularly exhibits her original paintings in the South West of England.
