J.A. (Jean Ann) Pollard is an artist/author who was born and currently lives in Winslow (after a few exciting misadventures in such places as Libya, Tunisia, Bermuda, the Bahamas, England, Russia, the Netherlands and, oh yes, California). She has illustrated many of her published books, short stories and non-fiction in pen and ink, and her acrylic paintings, which occur in three series, are owned by people in Russia, England and America, including NASA scientists.
‘Au Natural’, the early series, consists of landscapes and close-ups of plants, animals and insects; ‘The Reef Series’, which includes sculpture, describes the magic of threatened coral reefs; and ‘The Gaia Series’, combining acrylics with a lot of sculpting from mythology to dinosaurs, ‘talks’ about planet-care. Her studio/gallery in Winslow may be visited by calling 873-6443.
