UK-based artist Tessa Farmer began her career as a sculptor after completing her BA and MA at the prestigious Ruskin School at Oxford University.

As an artist, Tessa Farmer has shown incredible skill at creating surprisingly beautiful sculptures out of odd ingredients -- leaves, dead insects, and roots. Some of these sculptures are minuscule (1cm) and require an unbelievable amount of attention to detail.

Critics are fond of her artwork, too. In a bio by curator and artist Patricia Ellis, she stated as an artist, Tessa Farmer was someone whose work "conjure[s] a superstitious premise, dismantling the mythos of fantasia with evidence of something much more gothic, sinister, and bewitching."

Tessa Farmer's artwork has been exhibited all over the world, including New York City, Belgium, St. Petersburg, Russia and Perth, Australia. Her next solo shows will be at the Mottisfont Abbey museum in Hampshire, England and Attington Park, in Shropshire.
