Tessa Asquith-Lamb

Born in Yorkshire in 1973, Tessa Asquith-Lamb studied MA Fine Art (Hons) at Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh University, graduating in 1998.

She has exhibited at many galleries across the UK, including solo exhibitions at The High Street Gallery, Kircudbright 2010 and The Peter Potter Gallery, Haddington (1999). Her work has also been exhibited in the RSA and SSA Annual exhibitions, The Morley Gallery London, The Atlantis Gallery, London, The Compass Gallery, Glasgow and Leeds City Art Gallery Craft Centre and Design Gallery.

She has also recently had three exhibitions in Edinburgh and the Lothians of her collaborative project Fox Gospel, which features her illustrations to writer Rafael Torrubia’s poems and stories reflecting on fox legends.

Asquith-Lamb lives in East Lothian and also works as a freelance art educator for venues including The National Galleries of Scotland, The City Art Centre, Lauriston Castle and the Museum of Edinburgh.

"My etchings reflect my love of stories and storytelling, and help me record significant emotional moments like diary pages. Each image I create is assembled from drawings in my sketchbooks of beautiful things founds in museums, remembered moments, carefully observed self portraits, and objects from my collection of Victoriana and childhood treasures.

Foxes usually accompany me through these images, leaping and running or walking watchfully at my side. These beautiful and wily creatures symbolise my inspiration and offer joyful encouragement.

My work is for all those people who live out stories in their imaginations."

Her etchings are produced in very limited numbers, normally only 10 copies.
