'Poppy Study No. 1' 24x18 in.


This ‘Poppy’ painting was composed on top of a still life sketch from my undergraduate portfolio. My love for poppies began at 17, craving everything in that bright, orangey red. In 2011 I was fortunate enough to study art abroad in Montepulciano, Italy (the HEART of Tuscany!) where I was surrounded daily by fields of the flower I loved so much. I’ve incorporated their saturated color in almost all of my works and an abstracted forms of their shape as well. This use of the poppy flower in my work is nostalgic and symbolic, resonating with memories over my life that are so very close to my heart.
