Tessa Shields

Hello! I'm Tessa Shields. I have a B.F.A. in Film Production and an Art Minor from Chapman University. I have lived and worked in Utah and California, but currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah as a freelance filmmaker, photographer, and artist.

I have always had a passion for nature exploring the beauty of life on our planet through adventure, observation, and reflection. I have begun to understand myself as a woman and human being connected to the cycles of nature and all living things. The beauty and insight I continually experience inspires me to create art to empower, educate, and illuminate through photography, documentary and narrative film, as well as digital art, painting, weaving, and many other mediums.

I also facilitate workshops and gatherings with a focus on Women's Rites of Passage to reconnect to our own inner wisdom and honoring of our cycles and connection to nature.
