"Using solely palette knife, Tessa Nicole creates lively, textured floral oil paintings in an impressionistic style."Tessa's impressionistic style is inspired by her two favorite artists: Claude Monet & Vincent Van Gogh. With the free-flowing expression of Monet, and the texturized "touchability" of Van Gogh, Tessa's goal in creating her works is to open the eyes to a bright and talkative movement. Today's oil paintings are screaming to be revitalized to a more expressive, more exuberant state. Using solely palette knife, Tessa creates lively and textured pieces that capture the eye and fill any space with light.
