£795.00 Sold out
'Her Kisses Remind me of Lemon Slices,' by British artist, Poppy Ellis.
A glorious pink and peach sunset background applied thickly with swoops of texture. A scalloped edged plate of sun kissed lemons, two singing turquoise cacti in sealing wax red plant pots. A veritable colour swirl of happiness.
About the Artist
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.
