About Me

A writer of poetry through wisdom & philosophy

David Irvine

David Irvine

I remember the first time I wrote a poem. I was 21 looking into a blank text document on my laptop. Those words poured onto the page from a place of unknown. Even to this day, I'm not really sure where it comes from. It seems to sit around my mind waiting to come out. So, when I get time, I let the words spill out onto a fresh white page. I spend no more than ten minutes writing a poem. However, I do spend more time on the wisdom and article creation.

I have been with my beautiful wife for 17 years now. Together we have created four sons. Let me tell you, it's hard work at the best of times. We now live in Norwich and love the local beaches and country life.

My work life finds me as 'Head of Digital' for a packaging company. I have mastered over 12 years of experience in programming, design, photography and digital marketing. This mainly came from working with a digital agency. It's only recently I started working for one company.

Why Paradoxical Vista? It's something I keep shelving and then come back to. I've turned 40 this year and decided it's all or nothing. Paradoxical Vista is written to bend and open your mind through poetry and articles. I have also decided to sell my work through beautiful prints and handwritten originals.

My writing style is not for everyone. I try and keep punctuation and grammar to a minimum, especially in my poetry. I find the line breaks help with natural flow. The mind has the ability to add in what it needs without interruption. That's just how I see it. Some of my philosophy is designed to be difficult to read. You may need to read it several times. However, that's what I want from my writing. Enjoy!

You can print anything from the site for free, as long as you don't use it for commercial use, I'm happy with that. If you want a signed version? please buy one from the shop.

Poetry Commissions

I'm open to commissions so, please contact me with your ideas. I get a lot of requests from friends and family, especially for birthdays, special occasions and weddings. These are normally used in cards or framed poetry. I have also worked with some top brands to help produce advertising through poetry.
