Art has always been a passion of Tresslar's. She loves the many facets she can explore in the Sumi, Collage and Mixed Media areas of the Art domain. While painting, she tries to infuse personal energy, spirituality and inspiration into the art. Tresslar's inspiration may come from something she has seen, heard or felt. Abstract paintings and collages are a favorite, due to a fascination of handmade papers and found objects that can be incorporated into a piece of art. She is drawn to find new ways and methods to mix Sumi into other mediums.
Her work has exhibits throughout the Northwest, Arizona, California, New York, Japan, and China.
