Who is Tebbs Gallery?

Opening in January 2021, Tebbs is an online platform for contemporary arts aiming to explore the notion of “being” through both emerging and established artists. As the platform expands, we hope to find a physical space for exhibitions and workshops! Tebbs is ran solely by artist Kirstie Tebbs.

Founded by Kirstie Tebbs, she feel it is important to give back to the community, and so a percentage of exhibiting fees are either donated to a charity or put towards an artist opportunity each month!

Who are we?

Sarah Hardy

We've all taken risks right?

Sometimes the biggest risks we take, result in the biggest growth and the most profound realisations. It puts the smaller everyday stuff into perspective, the things we may take for granted.

The cogs really started to turn when I started to travel on my own. A trip to Northern Ireland to climb Slieve Donnard for charity with some friends really was the tip of an ever growing iceberg . Believe it or not, navigating the airport was my biggest concern, after everything else, why was going through an airport such a biggie? Little did I know, this wee trip with a purpose was to be the start of something much bigger! Something that would help me redevelop that sense of wholeness and express my lust for and appreciation for "all life".

It started many years ago after a pretty serious illness and during the onset of another. It took a while for it all to fall into place, but I found my daily walks, just the tip of the iceberg and I credit in part my resilience, head space and indeed the start of my fitness journey to them.

The beauty of nature has more than just healing properties, it has many lessons that we can use to evolve more peacefully, allowing us to feel more whole and healthy. Not only that, but I now use these experiences to produce fine art and fine art photography to help inspire others.

Hi, I’m Sarah, an artist and all round creative from Newcastle upon Tyne.

I’ve had a varied life and my upbringing with extended family somewhat shaped my perception of the world around me. My route through education was not quite straight, battling loss, peer issues and illness. As a result, in starting to find my feet, I also found a love of travel. I prefer it not always to just be for the sake of a holiday, finding causes to engage with as I go. I’ve worked in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, conservation and education and with underprivileged communities. 2019 saw me return to Africa for the third time. I have a definite fondness for the continent and the adventures it brings and I guess a lot of my work just after these periods reflects this. I feel my heart and mind just open exponentially when I’m stood there connecting with nature in all of its visceral glory.

Truth be known, I’m inspired on various levels everywhere I go, be that in the bustling city heat, to the remotest wilderness. My work unfolds during periods of time, encapsulating those experiences of sentience and greater connection to all that surrounds by me. Having run my own and sports and holistic therapy practice for 13 years, my deeper thinking of the bigger picture often comes into play. Expressed often through philosophy, ideas about harnessing self love and connection to the true self and empowerment, breaking down elements of detrimental social conditioning in order to perpetuate a more peaceful and equal wave through humanity, that will serve all sentient's more fairly.

My current work is in photography, though I am a painter at heart, I’m never without a camera and written word. Every piece of work has a story and unique insight, both on personal level and a broader relative spectrum, which I'd love to share with you.

An idealist, a pacifist maybe, but one with a vision that a kinder more accepting world is possible.

Kirstie Tebbs

I am a multi-disciplinary artist inquiring into 'being', exploring the philosophical ideas of presence, time and substance. My aim in my art is to showcase the idea of 'being' in an interactive installation space through perception, the infinite, absence, and presence. Currently studying Ma Fine Art at University of Hertfordshire. Founder of Tebbs gallery.
