Polly Alice, Painter & Sculpter

Polly Alice merges oil painting and soft sculpture stitching together personal archetypes to show the wear and tear of the improvisational and imperfect nature of human relationships.


“I love words and images and how they play together through symbols. I want my work to incorporate word pictures like dreams, tattoos and the song that won’t get out of your head. I want my art to grow and change with the viewer over time.”


Polly Alice’s received her BFA in Studio Art from Messiah University near Harrisburg, PA and her MFA from Hamline University in Writing for Children and Young Adults. Her art has been published in US newspapers and magazines and is showing across the US.


Polly’s favorite thing is to tell stories– other people’s, her own– maybe yours.
