"A visual artist and Nashville native, Tess Erlenborn made her foray into murals with an indoor mural for a private client’s nursery a few years ago. Last year, she took her work outdoors by contributing to the Nations’ collaborative mural on the side of the Music City Tents & Events building (she did the two Ns). Tess has always been a painter and drawer and confirmed her passion for the arts as a student at Harpeth Hall. She continued pursuing this passion by obtaining a B.F.A. at Sewanee in 2014 and became a full-time artist in 2016. In the studio, Tess paints with acrylic and oil “with a focus on natural textures, layered spaces and dualities.” Murals move her art to a larger scale and give her an opportunity to contribute to the street art community.
Tess is also a member of Nashville Artist Collective and works a few days a week at Tinney Contemporary."
