“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” (Picasso) I create vibrant, stylised and symbolic artwork. Self- taught, I have developed my own style ~ and am now known as a ‘Dorset Colourist’! This is a joyful never-ending journey for: ‘As long as I can paint, I am on the Path to understanding what ‘it’ is all about.’ (Wolff)

Caliope Art
Cali Norton Handwriting, symbols, kaleidoscopic patterns, spirals, motifs, and mandalas and in particular, Paleography, have always fascinated me…. So, I have created an original Pictographic Alphabet inspired by the Chinese Naxi script which, (alongside traditional iconic symbols) can be found in my work ~ as well as images from other ancient writing systems and Calligraphic markings. ‘Outside is form. Inside is thought. Deepest is the soul.’ (Deng Ming-Dao)
