Poppy is a figurative sculptor. She works from a private studio at Warren Park Heritage and Craft Centre in East Herts.
Poppy’s first public commission, monuments of Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh will be installed in niches on The Royal Albert Hall’s South Porch façade later this year.
Poppy graduated from the Courtauld in 2016 with a BA (Hons) in the History of Art. She then completed her training in figurative sculpture at The Florence Academy of Art, where she was awarded the ‘Graduate in Residence’ Prize for sculpture. In 2019, Poppy’s first life-size sculpture was commissioned in bronze, and she won the Tiranti Prize at the Society of Portrait Sculptors’ annual exhibition.
"I really enjoyed my day of sculpture with Poppy in her lovely studio. She is a wonderful teacher, very encouraging and spends time helping everyone individually and as a group. It was also great to get to take the armature home with some clay so I could continue working on my sculpture at home. Definitely recommended!"
"I had a wonderful day! The atmosphere was warm and friendly and not in the least intimidating. Poppy is extremely knowledgable and it was a real treat to have her guidance. I can't recommend this experience enough!"
"This was a well organised and thought out day, with lots of little touches to make us feel welcome. Poppy is an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. She helped me look much harder at what I was doing, and has hopefully moved me on a bit. The model was lovely, and very still for the designated pose periods, with regular breaks in between. Nice to have lunch in a separate room out of the studio. Lots of interesting and beautiful things to inspire you up in the studio itself. Hope to return for another course a bit later this year. It is quite an intensive day, and I was worn out by the time I got home! A big thank you!"
