Tess Jaray was born in Vienna and studied at St Martin’s School of Art and the Slade. She had her first solo show in London in 1963. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, with her work represented in public collections including the Tate, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. In 1985 she was commissioned to produce the terrazzo floor for Victoria Station, London. After this she completed several public commissions, including the forecourt of the British Embassy in Moscow, Centenary Square in Birmingham and the roof terrace of the headquarters of the Arts Council of England, Great Peter Street, London. In 1995 Jaray won the Jerwood Prize for Art and Architecture.
