Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Polly and I am an illustrator and stationery designer working in ink, pencil and watercolour from my London studio (spare room!)
I am best known for creating bespoke invitation suites for weddings and special occasions: with a combination of ink and watercolour drawings with my distinctive calligraphy, I create invitations that I intend to be treasured for many years to come. Everything is original: no re-prints, no cut and paste, no old work recycled. You can see some examples via the Wedding & Event Stationery tab above, and read more about how the process works here.
I adore creating memory maps as original artworks – of epic road trips, holidays, honeymoons, and collections of memories – or journeys through life. These are perfect gifts for big birthdays, a memorable wedding present, a ‘paper’ first anniversary gift and more. For some examples, see the Bespoke Commissions tab, and read some FAQs about maps here.
I am also lucky to work for publications, brands and companies looking to bring some illustration into their lives. You can see some of that work on the Editorial & Commercial page. Please email me if you’re interested in working together.
You an also shop my greetings cards, wrapping paper and prints via Portland Paper Company, where you’ll also find details of the creative classes (watercolour, calligraphy + map drawing) that I teach.
This website presents a changing snapshot of my work. Follow me to see what I’ve been up to most recently or get in touch if you have an idea you’d like to discuss.
My favourite colour is petroleum blue, and I love stripes!
