Our new Patron
WildAid is thrilled to have Pollyanna Pickering as our new Patron. Pollyanna is acclaimed as one of Europe's foremost wildlife artists and the most published artist in the UK, her work sells in over eighty countries world wide.
Pollyanna is passionate about wildlife and equally passionate about accurately interpreting her subjects. She is a champion of environmental conservation, both on the national and international stage, and is an indefatigable campaigner for the welfare of endangered, sick and vulnerable creatures.
Her paintings will be familiar to most people from her extensive ranges of fine art prints and cards, many commissioned by national and international charities. Pollyanna's determination to paint only animals which she has observed in their natural habitats has lead her into a remarkable and unique series of expeditions into some of the most inhospitable areas of the globe.
For fifteen years Pollyanna ran a registered hospital for birds of prey from her home. Caring mainly for injured and orphaned raptors, she also rehabilitated foxes, hedgehogs, squirrels and other mammals, all of which feature in her work. This contact with the creatures in her care is reflects in the realism and vitality of her work.
There is so much that Pollyanna has done and continues to do to inspire and connect people and wildlife through her amazing art, compassion for animals and charitable work.
We just could not cover it all here so we encourage you to find out more about Pollyanna by visiting - www.pollyannapickering.co.uk
We are very humbled to have the patronage of Pollyanna and Naturalist and TV presenter Nick Baker.
