Tess Rubinstein is an illustrator and maker hailing from a foggy mountain in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work draws inspiration from all things homegrown, using printmaking, digital media, and surface design to create approachable imagery for young and old alike. Fueled by cups of tea and a healthy dose of nostalgia, Tess explores ideals of the Slow Movement, feminism, DIY ethics, and living a good ole’ humble existence. When not drawing said themes you can find Tess in the woods, most likely lost as she has absolutely no sense of direction. She’s currently dwelling in Portland, Oregon and attending the Pacific Northwest College of Art.
