Polly Bennett

Polly graduated from City & Guilds of London Art School in 2018 and in 2019 completed The Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers Decorative Surfaces Fellowship. She is an Honorary Freeman of The Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers, and a member of the Wilderness Art Collective, a group of creatives whose work discusses the natural world. 


Polly is an environmental artist “portraying the land, with the land” through traditional craftsmanship, using locally sourced materials that guide her process. Looking at site-specific historical context, combined with a museological approach to materials, she collaborates with, and investigates the surrounding rural environment to re-visualise her experience within it. The concluding work recollects the explored environment as a souvenir.


Polly is a natural pigment collector and maker. In 2020 she founded her company POLBEN’s Pigment, where she celebrates and sells sustainable artist’s pigments and inks created from natural materials sourced by herself.
