Thomas Ingmire is one of the forerunners of the modern western calligraphy movement in the world today. Focused on the exploration of calligraphy as fine arts medium, he has exhibited widely in the United States and his works can be found in numerous libraries, museums, and publications, including the The Art of Thomas Ingmire by Michael Gullick, which documents a large body of Ingmire’s work.

The uniqueness of Thomas Ingmire’s art work lies in its relationship to the traditions of calligraphy. Elected in 1977 to the English Society of Scribes and Illuminators, Ingmire was the first American and first person outside of the United Kingdom to receive this honor. Teaching since l978, he has conducted workshops throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, and several countries in Europe as well as in Japan and Hong Kong. The recently published Codici 1, edited by Ingmire, reveals insights into his teaching and working philosophies on modern calligraphy.
