Meet the Artist


September: Tim Botts

Tim Botts is a Glen Ellyn resident and graduate of Carnegie-Mellon University who enjoys finding the balance between legibility and expression through calligraphy. His display this month features a collection of famous quotations to promote harmony among people.

Since 1975, he has taught calligraphy at the College of DuPage and currently serves as artistic director at Masterpiece Project, an outreach program for high school students in the arts. During his 40 years at Tyndale House Publishers, he designed more than 600 books. Check out Tim’s published work, including his newest book on African American spirituals, called Bound for Glory.
