Painting 'Blue Hydrangea and Cologne' Poppy Ellis

Contemporary Painting 'Blue Hydrangea and Cologne' by British artist Poppy Ellis.

Gnarly red and green apples collaged onto a blueberry-blue, vintage dish with a scalloped edge. Vibrant hydrangea scattered randomly across a white linen cloth, sprigs and sprays of kale green foliage. Bruised sloes and sulphur walnuts dotted here and there. A tiny Sunderland lustreware cup, symbolic of the artist's home town.

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.
