About Me

Poppy Dodge is an emerging artist from California, USA. Poppy graduated with her BFA from California State University East Bay with an emphasis in painting and drawing.  Upon graduation in 2003, she packed up her studio and moved to Los Angeles where she began her career in children’s art education and studio art. Teaching children lent itself well to Poppy’s playful approach in her work. She taught drawing, painting and mixed media projects with Monart School of the Arts, Los Angeles Children’s Art Camp and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles while continuing to show her work in various group and studio shows in LA. In 2013, Poppy and her family grabbed the opportunity to move to Wellington, New Zealand. Living by the sea, surrounded by unspoiled views and very dramatic weather, has been a thrill and inspiration, both in the studio and personally. She is a member the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and shows her work locally. Poppy can either be found making art in her tiny studio or out and about with her family.
