Polly has enjoyed creating art since she was a child, especially drawing and painting people.

Entering college, she decided on a practical profession, and pursued elementary education, and was an elementary school teacher for five years.

While taking time off from her career to raise her children, she started studying with a accomplished portrait artist to further advance her skills that had not yet been fully developed.

She has rediscovered that painting portraits is what she loves doing and she plans to make it her new career. "There is nothing more rewarding and enjoyable for me than creating a fine portrait," says Polly. "In every painting it is my goal to capture the subject's likeness and personality."

If you are considering commissioning a portrait or other painting she would enjoy discussing the possibilities with you.
