Artist / Personal Statement
POLLY ALICE author and illustrator, has been an active part of the arts communities in Harrisburg and the Twin Cities. In 2015 she opened New Thing Art Studio back home in KC-- where she writes and illustrates children’s books, paints portraits, and plans murals and community events. Her work is often mixed media. “I create my art to be more like poetry—to have symbolic meanings layered from dream images and personal memories.” Her work centers on the themes of healing, faith, and every day love for small things. Polly’s poetry has been published internationally in Naugatuck River Review and arc24. She won the 2014 Ernest Hartmann award from the International Association for the Study of Dreams from Berkley CA for research on the topic of self-awareness through dreamwork.
