Of Poems & Poets


Of Poems & Poets: …Echoes of the heart and soul

A coffee table book (published 2021) that brings together the work of 36 poets with colourful paintings and expressive visuals. I was commissioned by author-poet-educator Sheila Bhattacharya to illustrate a series of five poems that have been published in the book. The illustrations are inspired by several different painterly styles – from a child’s patchwork quilt to the nostalgic snow globes, responding to the words and visual imagery in a fun and playful manner. The artworks were rendered digitally, created on iPad using Procreate. The textures and other image sources were photographed by me and then integrated into the final paintings to create a rich tapestry of interest within the still pictures.
