Name: Tessa Rogers
School: Yale College
Year: Year 13
Inspiration: I’m a currently studying Fine Art. In my 5 years at Yale College I have developed work through the Welsh culture and have also discovered artists who influence my work like Fernand Leger, who is brilliant at creating bold, interesting abstract work, also Welsh artists who inspire me to create abstract work such as John Uzzell Edwards and Elfyn Lewis. I also love Monet and Degas’s beautiful paintings, with their bright and blurred colours. I like going to galleries and museums throughout the UK, to discover and learn about history and items that relate to my projects. I enjoy learning new ways of using different materials and making techniques, but I love printing the most because I like creating colourful bold images using intaglio, mono, relief and stencil. I enjoy making experimenting a lot because when I am working on a theme there is always so many ideas going through my mind, so I write down mind maps and come up with different examples to make sure if I see an idea and a material to use for creating an art piece it is recorded.
