I love Polly's work. I bought this for my sister, who was thoroughly enchanted and has it hanging up in her entrance full of plants. My sister loved how Polly wrapped the gift, and saved the paper, too! Thanks Polly and I will be buying from you again.

About

I'm hoping to spread a little joy with my paintings.

I'm inspired by daily life, all of those small moments that need to be noticed. I'm filled with a sense of purpose to share a gratitude for this beautiful, imperfect world and the Creator it reflects. Hopefully my work will connect with the spark of joy in you.

From early childhood It's been the visual language that has been the most natural way for me to communicate. I grew up in West Texas where the horizon stretched out forever and there wasn't a lot of what you'd think of as traditional beauty. We do have incredibly bright sunshine which is a big component of the work. My process usually includes painting directly from still life set ups near a bright window in my studio. It's a starting point to play with color, pattern, light and texture.

Using collage is my way of expanding the image. After all, the universe is a much bigger place than Abilene Texas. Found text and bits from maps or vintage childrens books are woven into the paint like all of the influences and thoughts that work their way into the act of looking. Polka dots are a grid that remind me of the energy and life that floods everything.

If you would like, you can see more work on my website and read a bit about my process on my blog. Also, I share work almost daily on Instagram.

    I've been making paintings all of my life. My crazy talented artist/art professor husband and I share a studio in Abilene, Texas where the sun is almost always shining.
