 About  T E S S

Tess Taaca has always had a constant need to immerse herself in the artistic world. She graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Central Florida. Her journey continued onto The Miami Ad School where she pursued Art Direction, while working in the Advertising industry. However, her true passion overcame technology and Tess went back to drawing with raw pigments. Many observers have mistakenly characterized her charcoal and pastel drawings as 'paintings' or 'photographs' due to their realistic qualities.


Tess has included another facet of artistic expression, along with her drawing projects. She is fine-tuning her passion for Photography. Tess has been blessed to be able to travel the world and presents to the viewers her story of what she sees through her lens. Her photographs are a visionary collaboration of, 'Living in the moment.' Tess' philosophy of her creative life is, "The people I meet and the places I visit will always be an inspiration for me to continue along this artistic journey." Southern California is where she, along with her husband, presently call home. But, this is just another chapter of her journey. This Artist, Photographer & Wanderlust Enthusiast has many collectors of her Fine Art & Photography from coast to coast.
