Poppy Waddilove

Poppy works mostly with oils, acrylics and a smudge of charcoal, though she always feels most comfortable with her trusty graphite pencil. London-based artist Poppy Waddilove creates graceful and stylish fashion illustrations. In her pieces she aims to create a timeless elegance in the woman that she portrays, which she does so beautifully in her exquisite Ballerina collection and her other Fashion led drawings.

The inspiration for her work comes 40's, 50's fashion and portraiture photography. She says of her works, I am drawn to the spontaneity of a moment, whether it be a reflective, thoughtful moment or a sudden graceful movement.
