Tickets now available for ‘Winding Wheel’ talk
Pollyanna is delighted to return once again to Chesterfield, Derbyshire to present a specially extended version of her brand new talk about her most recent expedition.
Stepping off the plane on to Australian soil Pollyanna completed her incredible quest to paint on all seven continents. During this talk she will share stories from the two months spent travelling around the country, visiting numerous wildlife sanctuaries and hospitals to learn more about the animals they were caring for. On Philip Island she was enchanted to watch the evening return of the fairy penguin – the world’s smallest species – to feed their chicks at their nest sites after a day spent fishing at sea. She spent time trekking in the outback, and searching for animals in the wild – being rewarded with numerous sightings of koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and even a wild dingo.
Pollyanna also joined wildlife rangers in the Western Plains of Victoria to help with their daily monitoring of wild koalas in the area, and spent a day planting trees as part of their eucalyptus reforestation project. While on the continent Pollyanna felt compelled to take in the iconic beauty of Uluru, in the red centre, which provided further inspiration.
There will be a question and answer session, and Pollyanna will be signing books and prints after the talk
