Published Work

Over the past 30 years, Pollyanna has become the most published artist in the UK. Practically every home in Britain will have enjoyed her work at some time in the form of a Christmas or greeting card, print or calendar.

Pollyanna’s very first published work was commissioned by Cockaynes Department store for use in their advertising campaigns in 1970. In the early part of her career, Pollyanna also designed packaging for American pet food company Dyno pet products and Sutherland Foods.

Between 1971 - 1980 Pollyanna’s work was published by Mill Wheel. Over 60 fine art prints were marketed throughout Europe in conjunction with Espagna International. From 1982 - 1992 Pollyanna was under contract to publishers Drayco, who published over 200 fine art prints and several limited editions, and also expanded Pollyanna’s work on to an assortment of gift ware, including bone china and stationary.

During this period specially commissioned work was also published by Bemrose Ltd., including the British Gas calendar in 1991 and the 1992 calendar “Birds and Bridges of Derbyshire” for the Derbyshire Building society, sold in support of the Council for the Preservation of Rural Britain. They commissioned a further 12 paintings for the 1996 “Wonderful Wildlife” calendar which raised funds for Pollyanna’s nominated charity Care for the Wild. In 1992 Febo International published exclusive limited edition prints and in 1994 Irish Linen Company Ulster weavers produced the first of a still increasing range of designs by Pollyanna.

Pollyanna has painted three series of limited edition collectors plates for Royal Doulton and Wedgwood, distributed through the Bradford Exchange. In 2003 she began a new collaboration with Danbury Mint who are continuing to release new collectors plates.

In 1999 Otter House launched the capsule range “Sanctuary” which commemorates Pollyanna’s remarkable series of expeditions to study endangered wildlife. The Countryside range of cards, prints, stationary and giftware launched in 2000 celebrates Pollyanna's love of British Wilidfe.
