Well-rounded nerd, writer, and artist, Tessa Morrison grew up in the misty mountains of West Virginia. She now resides in Austin, Texas where she has become a prominent fiber artist, puppet-maker, and cosplayer.
She has been in exhibitions put on by Spoke Art Gallery, Gallery 1988, Bold Hype Gallery, Hero Complex Gallery, Guzu Gallery, Creature Features, and Bottleneck Gallery.
Clients have included MTV, SONY, FUEL, Crackle.com, Cirque du Soleil, and Coldplay.
Animatronic puppet wizard Rick Lazzarini with The Character Shop has even voiced an interest in working with her.
Tessa enjoys watching cult, horror, and sci-fi films and is the Outreach Director for Austin Texas’ premiere SciFi film festival, Other Worlds Austin.
(She would love a chance to work with the likes of Henry Selick, Neil Gaiman, Guillermo del Toro, WETA, Laika, or the Jim Henson Company someday. Just throwing that out there!)
