Pollyanna’s daughter and business partner Anna-Louise has been invited to the Create and Craft TV studios on the 9th September to appear live on a two hour show at 12.00 to launch the brand new Pollyanna Pickering Craft DVDrom and paperkits exclusively on the channel. The kits will feature Pollyanna’s ever popular studies of British wild birds, including this brand new sketch of a robin.
Anna-Louise said ““I am very touched that Create and Craft have invited me into their studios to talk about the newest collection of crafting products to feature Pollyanna’s work.
Pollyanna created her paintings with the desire that they would be seen, enjoyed and shared with as many people as possible. It was her wish that I would continue to work with Creative Crafting World to bring crafters the opportunity to continue use her wonderful artwork.
I worked side by side with Pollyanna as her business partner for 25 years, and accompanied her on all of her expeditions to study and paint endangered species, and I will be proud to continue to share stories from her remarkable travels.
I am also committed to continuing the vital conservation and rescue work of the Pollyanna Pickering Foundation – and will continue to stage fundraising events and exhibitions.
Very few people are able to leave such an incredible legacy, and I know that her spirit will live on always through her paintings”
Anna-Louise will be appearing in the studio alongside demonstrator Lynda Chapman to chat to the presenters about the individual birds which inspired Pollyanna, her painting techniques, and her love of the wild creatures she painted. Lynda will be creating cards and craft projects live on air.
