about image 1920about image 1920


Tess Rubinstein is a multidisciplinary artist hailing from a foggy mountain in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her practice is centered around moments of simple joy, using painting, illustration, and textile design to encourage a nurturing of the present moment. She finds inspiration in her current landscape, as well as patchwork quilts, slow living practices, and the uninhibited female form. She received her BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2017, and is currently residing somewhere in the sun.
