Tessa Siewert (born York, PA 1989) is a Washington, DC-based artist who specializes in contemporary abstract expressive compositions and figurative work. Siewert received her Masters of Art in Painting at Savannah College of Art and Design and received her Bachelors of Science in Art Education degree from Temple University Tyler School of Art in 2012. Her art explores the relationships of color and the fleeting moments that inspire each creation; whether that be based upon a memory of a place, season, or experience. The medium drives her process by the nuanced colors and overlays that create new forms and help to guide each journey of her artwork.
During the summer of 2018, Siewert worked on a commission with CulturalDC creating and developing a fence wrap at a construction site located directly outside of the Nationals Ballpark Stadium (DC’s MLB team). She has shown works in local settings in both York, PA and Montgomery County, MD. Most recently, Siewert participated in a duo exhibition at the Yellow Barn Gallery in Glen Echo, MD fall 2017 featuring works from her master's program.
Aside from expressive painting she enjoys teaching art in Montgomery County, MD; four years at the middle school level and has worked since 2016 at the high school level. In her fourth year of teaching Siewert was honored with ‘New Middle School Art Educator of the Year’ for Montgomery County.
