Teaching Artist: Tess Cahill
Tess Cahill is a senior-year art student at Eastern Oregon University. She was born and raised in La Grande, and has had a fondness for crafting since her mother taught her to draw as a child. Tess particularly loves painting and printmaking. In the last year, her work was exhibited in the Women’s Exhibition at the Josephy Center for Arts & Culture and at ACE in “The Big” and the EOU junior exhibition “in the midst”. The artists she draws the most inspiration from include Caroline Walker, Heinrich Kley, Elizabeth Lennie, Glen Keane, and Lois Van Baarle. When she’s not in the studio or spending time with friends, Tess enjoys sketching, going on walks, and playing with her cats. In the future, she aspires to work in animation or illustration.
