Tessa McIntyre

Tessa McIntyre died in February 2021. She was a popular and valued member of the Society. We have decided to leave this, her page, in place.

Tessa lived and worked in North West Dorset. She trained at the Bournemouth College of Art from 1954 to 1958 and again from 1962 to 1963. For the following 30 years she taught art in Secondary Schools in Southern England and at various Adult Education Centres.

Her work may be described as strongly graphic representations of landscape – free flowing, with a bold use of bright vibrant colour as well as cleverly subtle colour.

She worked in watercolour, oil and mixed media. She also created prints using the traditional lino cut and screen methods.  


Tessa exhibited at the following locations: 

Bankside Gallery – London 

West of England Royal Academy – Bristol 

Poole Printmakers – Poole 

Guggleton Gallery – Stalbridge

Shaftesbury Arts Centre – Shaftesbury

Laurence Mitchell Gallery – Isle Of Wight
