Visual Artist

POLLY BURGE was born and raised in Lynchburg, Virginia, with a passion for animals, art, and the outdoors. She attended North Carolina State University, completing her Bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language & Literature (2014). After working a summer job wrangling horses and guiding dudes at Eatons’ Ranch outside of Sheridan, Polly fell in love with the landscape, horse culture, and the people she met in Wyoming. She moved to call Sheridan home in February of 2015.


In the years since, Polly has worked various jobs that have enabled her to maximize time outdoors. She has taught riding and horsemanship, schooled green horses, and helped guide riding, fly fishing, and camping excursions throughout Northern Wyoming, Southern Montana, and Arizona. In the fall of 2016, Polly began integrating her art practice into her career, drawing and painting what she saw in her travels. After becoming a member at SAGE Community Arts, Polly joined the board in January 2019 with a personal mission to expand membership, integrate arts appreciation programming, and establish an endowment (2021). Polly was recognized in 2019 as one of 20 Under 40 by the Sheridan Press, and is a graduate from the Leadership Wyoming Class of 2022. Polly’s work can be found in a number of Sheridan, Dayton, and Buffalo galleries, reflecting her experiences in the Bighorn Mountains and the Cloud Peak Wilderness.
