Wildlife artist Pollyanna Pickering has been presented with a prestigious environmental award for her dramatic painting.
The Oaker-based painting won the Envionmental Concern Award in the Wildscape International Wildlife Artist of the Year Awards, for her painting What Have We Done.
She said: “I always try to promote through my artwork an understanding and awareness of some of the environmental threats we face. It is rare that I have the opportunity to address this subject so directly, and I am delighted to have received this recognition in these prestigious awards.”
The artwork which includes elements of collage and lettering as well as fine painting, is a vision of a bleak future caused by environmental destruction. Pollyanna added: “This image is intended as an early warning - if we act now, we can still save some of the most vulnerable areas.”
