I’m absolutely thrilled to have my calligraphy on display at Bede Metro Station in Jarrow, South Tyneside, as part of a community art project led by artist Mark Gibson.
The panels reflect the history and heritage of the area and I was asked to write three poems by local writer Tom Kelly and a passage from The Venerable Bede’s Ecclesiastical History of the English People.
Comment from Mark Gibson: “I’d like to thank you for your beautiful calligraphy contribution to the Bede Metro Station art installation titled Convergence.
“Your calligraphy works perfectly with the poetry of Tom Kelly and my abstract paintings which form the foundation of the panels at Bede station.”
Poems and readings
Poems and readings, song lyrics, a passage from a book – any words that are special to someone can be written in beautiful handwriting and framed to make a unique gift for any occasion.
From teapots to books, calligraphy can be used to add a personal message to gifts or create one-of-a-kind pieces.
