Tess Barker

Tess recently completed a double degree in Teaching and Fine Art (Honours) at Newcastle University. She is a printmaker working in linocut and is drawn towards the depiction of Australian flora and fauna. She had the opportunity to document the beauty of the Ku-ring-gai National Park while growing up in the Pittwater area of Sydney. Tess has worked and exhibited in galleries in Newcastle and Sydney and is one of Bungendore Wood Works Gallery’s customer service representatives. Her framed linocut print, Protea: New and Spent Bud was awarded second prize in the youth art section for emerging artists at the 2010 Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize. Her finely executed relief images both in monotone and in brilliant colouring are indicative of her chosen subjects and display a level of confidence and maturity not often found in such a young artist.

Timber and veneers are natural products, and a range of colour variations within each species is to be expected.

For some online purchases we are unable to specify what timbers are available at any one time as many of our products are made in a wide variety of timbers. In these cases please select your preference of light, medium or dark timber.

When checking out you can choose to be emailed images of available timber variations to choose from.
