ABOUT POLLY BOSTON
Pauline (Polly) Boston
I am originally from Ohio, where I was a music teacher for 22 years.
However, I have always liked to draw, and did a lot of art work for
other people as a hobby, working mostly in acrylic or charcoal.
When I moved to Florida in 1998, I studied watercolor with several
excellent teachers at Art Center Manatee in Bradenton, and loved the
medium immediately. I have won many awards in juried
competitions. Now I have limited my art to watercolor and
I won my signature membership in the Florida Watercolor Society in
three straight years, and currently have a painting in the traveling
show and at the FWS exhibit at the Tampa airport.
I love to do commissioned paintings, because it involves studying
subjects that I would not ordinarily think of to paint, from grandbabies
to grizzly bears! I enjoy working with people to produce the perfect
piece of memorable artwork for gifts or for their own homes.
