Tedman&Strand is a fine art brand co-founded by artist Kate Tedman (b.1979, UK) and artist/designer Samantha Strand (b. 1986, USA). They currently create works while traveling between Camogli, Italy and Joshua Tree, California USA.

Tedman and Strand joined forces in late 2013. Both came from collaborative backgrounds with foundations in various and divergent worlds including interior and graphic design, fine painting, sculpture, building restoration and social practice, with works that have been shown at the DeYoung Museum, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and Gallery Wendi Norris in San Francisco, Leila Heller Gallery and The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in New York, and the Dubai International Finance Center, UAE.

Tedman&Strand produce collections of work that explore the lust for romanticism within our present reality of science fiction, as well and celebrate the canonization of the failed, historic, and antique within technological times. Their current collection consists of hand-swen silk tapestries and painted works on paper.
