English Symbolist Art     
By   Christopher   English




Symbolic images in my paintings are a complement to the imagery evoked in my poems. Ideas for the symbolism in my art derive from my poetry.

This web site is in the process of being updated, Beside displaying my own particular brand of symbolism and poetry, I shall be including a resource of links to other websites that have similar interest in Art and Poetry.

I have had several of my paintings put into a postcard format. Postcards are a good way to publish my artwork. Also it is another way of exhibiting my paintings.
