A lovely little gallery in Hopper's Yard, one of Holt's charming 'lokes', Tess is always welcoming, occupying a small accessible space, where she sells a wonderful variety of original art work, both her own and that of other selected artists, as well as her own delightful and amusingly imaginative cards, with collaged images and messages for every occasion. Highly recommended and well worth a visit.
