Equally right-brained and left-brained, Tessa has been a lawyer, teacher, and radio show host as well as living a creative life.   She believes that life is to be lived fully and embraces new opportunities to express and create. 

Tessa creates visual art ranging from painting and sketches to large street art and murals.  She has showcased works in various Denver area festivals and galleries. She was an award winner in the Denver Chalk Art Festival and a commissioned artist in the Aurora Arts Festival.

Besides spending time on her creative pursuits, Tessa enjoys running and other outdoor activities, good cups of coffee, wine-tasting, and building deep relationships.  The most rewarding investment of her time has been in raising and homeschooling her family. She and Jon have three children ranging from elementary age to college.
