Polly Morgan was born in England in 1980 and lives and works in London. She had an unconventional upbringing, raised in the country alongside goats, llamas, hens, hamsters and every other popular domesticated animal, but only discovered taxidermy some years after coming to live in London at 18. In 2005 she studied the art under George Jamieson and has subsequently forged a personal practice founded on its technical conventions.
