Poppy is a London based Painter and Fashion Illustrator, having completed an Illustration BA at London College of Fashion and studied Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins. 

From sketching live from the catwalk at Fashion Week to high profile events for hotels and companies, Poppys’ fast and fluid signature style is becoming her trademark. Her clients include: VOGUE, Selfridges, Tatler, Grazia, YOU Magazine, Stylist, The Berkeley, The Lanesborough and Dukes Hotel.

Painting quickly and intensely using oil paint, inks or watercolour, Poppy is inspired by dream-like emotion, capturing the line and gestures of the body and creating spontaneity of movement. She is drawn to the confidence and simplicity of a line and aims to create a timeless elegance in her approach to figures and interiors.

Poppy has exhibited a solo show in Proud Gallery, London and a group exhibition at Oxo Gallery. Her recent ones including ‘Kate Moss’ Iconic Looks,’ ‘Fashion Flora’ and ‘100 Women’ for SHOWstudio . She has collections of artwork selling in London galleries, luxury interior sites, as well as internationally in New York, Milan and Tokyo.
