Polly Gentry is a Kansas abstract multi media artist. Her artistic process began as a child in Omaha, NE. Polly grew up in a home with a wonderful art collection which she would spend hours studying the intricate works of Picasso, Miro, Chagall, and more. Her father was a well known architect, Stanley J.
