My Artwork and Calligrams

Welcome to my gallery of original artwork. I work mostly with watercolours so when I became interested in calligraphy I combined my love of painting with lettering and words and became fascinated with calligrams. The word calligram means “beautiful writing”, probably because the letters and words are arranged into an image. It is sometimes called concrete poetry. I prefer to describe it as visual poetry.

My strongest interest remains with watercolour painting, especially an impressionist style created through a wet in wet technique. I now reproduce some of my paintings as prints.

Section One  consists of some of my paintings. You can find more of my paintings and prints for sale at http://www.etsy.com/nz/shop/TinkerTailorDesign
