Tennessee Charpentier is the creative driving force behind Visionary Art by Messiah. Born and raised in Amiens France, Tennessee was encouraged from a early age to explore her natural creative talent. This led Tennessee to gaining entry into prestigious Parisian School ESAG Penninghen where she excelled, attaining her Masters Degree in Graphic Design. At the completion of her training Tennessee was offered an opportunity to enter the Parisian Fashion scene as an Art Director. After exploring the potential of a professional career on the path well traveled, she decided to take a leap of faith to explore the diversity of Australia, NZ and USA – discovering arts and culture festivals such as Burning Man and the lifestyle these events teach. She now calls Melbourne her home and through the local music and arts scene has become inspired to combine formal graphic design with visionary art, surrealism and symbolism to form her unique style. Visions and ideas arise from her subconscious, communicating lessons to be applied to life – themes of inner strength and courage are expressed on canvas to motivate everyone to embrace their life path and strive to self actualise. Over the past 2 years she has had the opportunity to learn along side prominent members of the Visionary Art Movement such as Alex and Allyson Grey, Luis Tamani and C.T. Nelson.
