Tessa Newcomb (1955) is one of those -in my eyes- very British artists that I am drawn to.
Her work is narrative, almost illustrative, something that was considered almost a sin in the time I was in artschool, but I like.
As always, it's the everyday subjects and the bright colors that attract me in this work.
Tessa Newcomb is the daughter of Mary Newcomb who was also a painter.
She first learned to paint on the offcuts in her mother's studio.
