Sea-swimming inspired illustrations

Polly's work captures the joy of embracing nature and the great outdoors, with a nod to vintage seaside posters.

With a background in illustration and design and a love for drawing and recording the world around her, Polly's practice combines printed block colour and line drawing with influences of the past and the nostalgic romance of less complicated times.

Recent inspiration has come from Polly's love for sea swimming and the sea swimmers of her Hove neighbourhood. This set of original prints translates experience and observation into a set of simplified elements, held together by line. 

"I am interested in the playful engagement between line, shape and colour. I embrace what it is to be a woman - curves and all - and seek to reflect the strength and sassy nature of the women around me."
