“Polly’s work has been a crucial part of developing the character and tone of my newsletter The Dolly Mail. Her beautiful, vivid, concise illustrations have adorned every edition; her creativity never fails to astound me. You give her 800 words or an idea or even just a headline and she finds a way to capture it with a drawing that’s unexpected, fresh, imaginative, both metaphorical and literal with humour thrown in too. Her work has a very distinct, unique feel and I’m proud to affiliate my writing with it; she has the fine skills of an illustrator, with the heart of a cartoonist who can cut to the essence of a story. I feel very lucky to work with her.” Dolly Alderton
