My name is Tessa van der Horst and I am an artist currently studying at art academy Minerva in Groningen, The Netherlands. As well as studying fine arts I am also studying for my art teachers degree.
I am mainly a textiles and yarn artist. I try to work with recycled materials only. I thrift or find most of my materials. I believe this is better for the planet as well as recycling materials gives extra layers of meaning to my work. I also have a strong attraction to and fascination with the color pink, so this will usually be a prominent color in my work.
