Banyan Tree Designs creates visual poetry company, heart-poems realized in stunning watercolors.

Banyan Tree Designs Visual Poetry prints are wonderfully beautiful and emotionally touching.

Banyan Tree Designs opened its virtual doors this month in order to offer visual poetry to art lovers throughout the world. The company is the brainchild of Mary Ellen Fortier who, through a series of fortuitous meetings, brought together two fine artists, the poet Rich Marcello and the painter Josh Stewart, to create unique and distinctive visual poetry. Each piece starts with Rich’s poem, and with that as inspiration, Josh takes the poetry visual using watercolors -- a favorite medium. Together, the work is deeply personal, yet hopefully general enough that some will resonate and find a place in your home.

The company has begun with six visual poems and will add new ones on a regular basis as they are created. The goal is to have fifty or so visual poems for sale during the first year of operation. You can view all works on our website at Please stop back often to view the new pieces as they go up in the store. Drop a note to info(at)banyan-tree-designs(dot)com and let us know what you think. We would love to hear from you.
