I love these text portraits by Leslie Nichols, and I found a short interview she gave about her work:
"Experimenting with text and image has become endless source of ideas and inspiration central to my studio practice.
Letterforms create both spatial and literary passages, which provide a visual texture that is exciting and sometimes challenging to work with.
It has been a natural evolution to use writing in my visual work. Informal sketches while doodling or writing letters to friends were my first calligrams. I began incorporating text in my fine art portraiture when I discovered a typewriter was an exciting image making tool."
