Tessa Shearer studied Art & Design whilst at college in Skipton, Yorkshire. After the birth of her first child, Tessa returned to college to continue her professional development in Theatre Costume Design. A frustrated designer, Tessa left college before finalizing her qualification, keen to establish her own business. Tessa has developed an array of experience in fashion, jewelry and website design. In addition, Tessa creates pop art, comic book, illustration paintings and limited edition art prints. Tessa was also pre-selected for the Royal Society of Portrait Painters exhibition in London. Tessa’s passion for innovative craft and design, inspired from Japanese and vintage styles, is also inspired by her two young children, and has resulted in the launch in the spring 2012 of House of Wonderland. Her aim is to offer unique, colourful designs, whilst supporting independent companies, designers and suppliers, with most supplies from independent UK stores to provide a “proud to be British” product.
