I’m Polly and I’m a fabric and textile artist from Wellington, New Zealand. I’m here to do one of the hardest things an artist can do, let alone an independent spinster like me - ask for money.
So here we are, welcome to my Patreon Page!
 
I’m an Artist who works in the medium of fabric, and textiles.
I create what I call Modern Appliqué Tapestries, and cloth art dolls, in the form of Fetch’s, Faeries, and Poppets. I am inspired by mythology and the natural world, as well as this wonderful city that I live in, where the people and views are colourful and vibrant.

I work with textiles and fabric because I don’t like getting paint on my hands, (ha!) and I love the challenge of taking a medium that is so often considered ‘craft’ (and therefore less valued) and creating fine art with it. I also love the challenge of getting the various patterns and textures of the fabrics to look like they belong together in artworks that are rich, touchable and that people can connect to.

My Goal with Patreon is to have enough money so that I can continue to create works of art, and experiment with creating other products from my designs such as prints, postcards, badges, and doll patterns. I also want to continue to support myself as I build my business into something that will eventually become full time, with the added bonus of finding more people who I can create wonderful works of art for.



If you become one of my Patreons, you will have access to the Patreon only side of this website, including early sneak peaks of what I am currently working on, (both original artworks, for my website, sneak peek of my gallery work, and a special sneak peak of the long term projects that i am working on). You will also have early access to prints, cards, Fetch, Faery and Poppet fabric doll patterns and other products as i create them.  there will be a quarterly video on, works in progress, studio tour, your questions answered, and about my art process and artworks. The rewards will range from singed prints,  greeting cards and postcards with my artwork expertly printed on them, through to prints, patterns, calendars and tapestries, and early access to other products as create them, and access to some patreon only projects.  


My goals for this year are to have available prints of more of my work, as well as postcards and a set of greeting cards. I will also look into the creation of a series of badges/broaches of at least two of my designs and to work on my Blue grass Faery Band, Project (art dolls) while continuing to create original and custom work.
