£0.01 Sold out
Delicious still life from best selling artist, Poppy Ellis. Entitled, 'On My Table,' this painting depicts Ellis's kitchen table with several sculptural bisque, ceramic pots from her collection. A lapis lazuli plate of zinging pears, a bouquet of wild flowers. Fabulous textures throughout this piece especially on the bleached, wooden table and the powder blue pompom flower on the right. Elegant teals, sunny yellows and inky blues.
Poppy Ellis is a painter, she lives on the edge of the English Channel in a wind swept corner of Kent.
She grew up in Sunderland and studied Illustration at Newcastle. She has worked as an art director in publishing, packaging and food styling.
Ellis is inspired by folklore and fairy tales, secrets and puzzles. Her pieces are narrative, often connecting themes from her childhood. Red Riding Hood may be juxtaposed with the Tale of Jeremy Fisher. Vases of tissue paper, poppies sit happy with a Feegee Mermaid.
Her style layers painterly and abstract with graphic elements and patterns. Her still life painting mix old and new pieces, medieval ceramics mingle with contemporary pottery.
Ellis worked as an art director in London for many years and has now traded in her train card for her studio which she shares with her husband and two barky dogs.
