The amazing Maya Angelou is full of beautiful, wise words. I LOVE this quote, and find it very motivating!

My collection of ink paintings came about through creating textures with ink and water. I loved the result so much that I started experimenting with calligraphy over the top and was delighted with the result. These paintings are all unique, eye catching and ever so slightly feminist.

If you like the style of these prints but would like a quote written on them that is more personal to you, please get in touch, I'd be happy to make one for you.

This is a print of my original ink and calligraphy painting. It has been printed digitally using high quality inks, onto stiff card. The print is A4 sized.
