Tessa Apa is a self taught textile artist, working from a home studio in Tamaki Makaurau.
Her work revolves around words and symbols, with the belief that nothing written is ever silent. Tessa is a lifelong creative, with a passion for colour and vibrancy that translates to everything she does.
As a recent empty-nester, Tessa is taking advantage of having more time for creative expression and exploration.
Tessa creates vibrant textiles and is also the author of two children’s books, also available at The Poi Room.
