“EXPRESSION WILL FOREVER CHANGE, BUT MY PURPOSE WILL FOREVER STAY THE SAME”.
Creator—Tess Guinery traded her dance shoes for a Mac book pro graduating from The Karl Von Busse Institute of Design, Australia in 2012 with an awakened passion to design and create. Very soon her creative eye and voice was echoed locally and beyond, inspiring others to find beauty in the routine of everyday—even in the mundane. Showcasing her individual and collaborative work across multiple mediums, Tess took the plunge and dived head-first into running her own business. After establishing herself as a sought-after designer, with exploding growth and creative opportunity bursting at the seams, Tess pressed pause and decided to take a sabbatical from design to explore untapped creativity, taking time to play. In this time, Tess accidentally wrote a book—The Apricot Memoirs, a romantic fusion of words, colour, and soul; birthed within a season of slow, surrender, overseas travels and rainbows—her double blessing (twins). Her beautiful sabbatical and reprieve gifted her free flowing-words—another expression for further exploration that is now taking her on a journey of its own.
