Large Contemporary painting, 'Juliette and Romeo,' Poppy Ellis

This powerful painting by Ellis is a cornucopia of ultramarine, cyan blue, bubble gum pink with sherbet lemon highlights. Smashing stamped background with a foliage pattern in sage green. Juliette is resplendent in a coral shirt with dancing swallows, her faithful Romeo cradled over her arm.

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.

Her style layers painterly and abstract with graphic elements and patterns. Her still life painting mixes old and new objects with no apparent connection. Ellis loves colour and the joy that brings, Smartie blue, peppermint, bubblegum and sherbet lemon abound.

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.
