Hi! I'm Polly Linn, the creator and artist behind Bittersweet Pixie.
As a child I was fascinated by the natural world, especially insects. I would watch them for hours, imagining what a different landscape the world would be from their perspective. My backyard was transformed into an entire continent, with mountain ranges to climb, rivers to forge, and life and death battles that were waged against this vast wilderness as well as between the various insect tribes that called it home.
As an artist I have incorporated natural sciences into much of my work. Entomology, organic chemistry, and geometry show up regularly in my subject matter and compositions. And I still enjoy watching the insects for hours, but now I take my camera along.
I live and work in the magical, pixie infested realm of Portland, Or.
