Personalized Artwork

About My Art

  

I was not an artistic child. I was never discouraged by a teacher or adult… I was my own critic. As part of my college curriculum, I had to take an art class. Using pencil and paper, we drew objects. I quite distinctly remember a hand, a face, and a chair… it was not a pleasant experience for me. Many (many!) years later, I was exposed to Adobe Illustrator and that was the birth of the artist within. It took many more years to work up the courage to get off the computer and get my hands dirty :)

 

SO, although I don’ t care for the confinement of labels, titles or definitions, my completed work falls under mixed media… or assemblages… or crafted… or… well, as I said I don’t like being defined… anything can happen! When you visit my shop you will find originals, metallic prints, ink prints.  I am experimenting with integrating my artwork with reclaimed objects. Oh, what fun!

 

I love to experiment! Surveying my studio I find a plethora of supplies!  India ink, spray dye, acrylics, watercolor, oil, pastels, chalk, crayons, pencils, markers, tissue paper, old school papers, old newspapers and magazines, copies of my journal, glitter, glue, structure gel, stencils, stamps, old jewelry, acrylic gemstones, embroidery floss, thread, colored wire, ribbon, beads, and bins of “stuff”. And then there is my digital world… Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, an Epson printer/scanner, and my constant companion, the trusty Canon SL.


I would love to create a piece of personalized artwork just for you.  Please contact me at Polly@PollyPRB.com


About Me

 I like excitement without drama. I prefer to be on the sidelines… not the center of attention. I believe each moment is a gift. I believe if you are not passionate about how you make a living, you should do something else... life is too precious to spend 8 hours not enjoying what you are doing, 8 hours thinking about not enjoying what you are doing  and 8 hours dreaming about not enjoying what you are doing. I don't watch or read the news.  I find peace in nature and love giving trees a hug.   I believe love simply is, with no degrees. I love to walk in the grass barefoot. My favorite word is "absolutely!" I am learning to turn my mind off... and simply be. I do not believe in chance… there is a reason and lesson behind everything. I believe there are times that you let things happen and times you make things happen. I am vegetarian. I love with all that I am and all of my heart. I recycle, reuse, and donate... taking care of mother earth starts with me. I believe in aging gracefully. I like smiling and being around people who smile and find that most times a smile is returned with a smile. I believe titles and labels are meaningless, and refuse to listen to how others define me… I define myself. I believe in simplicity... the more stuff you have, the more time you spend taking care of stuff. I believe we each create our own reality. I simply am. 

My Craftsmanship

I love packaging! Whether purchasing a piece for yourself or someone else, you will receive a unique, handcrafted gift. Each piece is mounted to a decorated piece of backing board. It is then topped off with ribbon tied into a bow (fair trade sari silk, twine, yarn, crepe, taffeta, twill, raffia… I can’t leave a store without checking out possibilities!). The end result is a protected piece of artwork, packaged with love. ♥
