As an artist and a climber Tessa Lyons is interested in the visual appeal of geology. Why it is that alpinists are drawn to certain mountains or why rock climbers describe certain routes or lines in rock as beautiful. As a climber she wants to experience these places but as an artist she wants to capture the essence of them.
Her work is about her love of being outside in beautiful, natural surroundings. Since she was young she has been an avid rock climber, she enjoys the amazing places climbing can take you to. Her work explores our relationship to the landscape by tying together her passion for being out in the wilderness with her lifelong enjoyment of drawing and painting.
