Inkpot Art

The website has been designed, initially, as a virtual gallery rather than a 'shop front' although pieces may be purchased directly either from the gallery or by telephone (see contacts).

John Conroy is an artist with a lifelong passion for what he often refers to as "The boundless capacity of the creative line." His work is a marriage of powerful penmanship and vibrant colour, applied imaginatively to subjects both ancient and modern.

Brought up in New Zealand by English parents, John developed an early fascination for the deeply symbolic nature of both the carvings of the native Maori and the intricate Anglo Saxon art of the British Isles. His unique style is a sometimes subtle, sometimes chaotic blend of traditional symbolism and contemporary expression, often inspired by his love of literature and, in particular, poetry.
