Polly

This humble beauty is a 21st Century explorer - though London is home, she has rarely put down roots in recent years. Instead, she has been pursuing her love of travel and airplane journeys (particularly when settled in with a Bloody Mary and a bag of peanuts). Creative through and through she is mostly to be found armed with her camera, excited by taking portraits of landscapes, friends and foliage on her voyages. She is warm, enthusiastic and bright, living in the world of possibilities - inspiring and motivating all those around her.
