About Artist Tessa Koller

Born and raised in the Chicago area, Tessa Koller has been a dedicated artist since she learned how to hold a pencil. At a young age, she could draw and paint likeness of portraits with precision and intricacy. In 2008, she earned her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.

With a focus on shapes that complement a woman’s physique, she produces structural dresses and garments which have garnered the likes from numerous public figures on social media.

Her career as a public motivational speaker began and her speeches were translated in several different languages.
