Some tiles derived from regular polygons can produce spiral tilings of the plane [1]. This paper considers some more general classes of tilings with tiles derived from regular polygons, some have central symmetry, many have periodic symmetry, some have both, and a few have no symmetry at all. Any of these tiling patterns could be the basis for some interesting mathematical art, for example by colouring or decorating the tiles.
