About Josephine the Explorer

Josephine Peary, First Lady Of The Arctic
Despite being married 'to the most unpleasant man in the annals of Polar exploration' (according to Fergus Fleming), Josephine Peary accompanied her husband Robert on seven of his Arctic expeditions and to Greenland when eight months pregnant, to much amazement. She helped fund Robert's expeditions, and his rescue vessel, partly through the success of her book 'My Arctic Journal'. She learnt to trap, hunt and shoot and describes their boat being besieged by two hundred and fifty angry walruses.


About the artist

Michaela Gall studied at Chelsea School of Art and L’Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris. She works on paper and in ceramic. Her work is produced under the umbrella of Majolica, a form of ceramics originated in Renaissance Italy which uses tin-glazes painted over an opaque white background glaze, with an earthenware body.  Michaela creates pieces that are painted within the tradition of Folk Art, documenting various subjects such as historical events, patterns, symbols and people from different cultures. Her celebrated Painted Portrait series explores various cultural figures throughout history from Queen Elizabeth I to Jimi Hendrix.
